Experiencing history at Castellammare del Golfo

The town was of great importance in ancient times as it was the trade center of the Elymians, the inhabitants of Segesta and Erice.

Later the town was ruled by the Arabs and called „Al Madarig“. It was the Arabs who built famous „Scalinata Rotary della Pace“, the staircase from the large piazza to the harbor, and the tuna factory of Castellammare.

The Arabs were driven off by the Normans, who erected the impressive fortress, which has given the town its name.

Today, the fortress houses "La Memoria del Mediterraneo" („The Memory of the Mediterranean Sea“), a museum which offers interesting insights into tuna fishing, into the underwater world and into local traditions.
