Mazara del Vallo

Satyr

In a strategic position at the centre of the Mediterranean, between the European and African continents, Mazara has always been a destination for conquest. On the mouth of the river Mazaro which crosses the city, rises the canal port on which the activity of the largest fishing fleet in Italy is based. The city is always a crossroads, a privileged point of cultural and commercial exchange. In this sense, the city’s openness to others and its multiethnicity is written in its history and is still seen today in its large Tunisian community. The numerous civil and religious buildings to admire in the historic centre show the cultural influences that have involved the city. Absolutely not to be missed is the Dancing Satyr, an extraordinary bronze sculpture from the Hellenistic period, found in the Strait of Sicily. Nearby the interesting naturalistic sites of the lake Preola and Gorghi Tondi Integrated Nature Reserve and the Paludes of Capo Feto and Margi Spanò are to be found.
