Trapani is the most Westerly Sicilian City. Originally constructed by the Sicani, the town was called "Drepanon" by the Greeks. Not surprisingly, its strategic position has meant that Trapani has always been a port of great commercial importance, as well as being a successful fishing town.
Its cultural significance is represented in buildings such as the Sanctuary of the Annunziata, the Cathedral of St Lorenzo, the Church of St Maria del Gesù, the Church of Purgatory, the Grande Palazzo, Palazzo Riccio di St Gioacchino, Palazzo Cavaretta, Palazzo delle Giudecca, Colombaia Castle, Terra Castle, the Ligny Tower and Prehistoric Museum, Pepoli Museum, and the Salt Museum.
Not to be missed: the Via del Sale with its characteristic salt works. The most important cultural, religious and popular events held in the town is the Good Friday Procession which represents the various stages of the Passion and the death of Christ.
