The Reserve of the Lagoon of Stagnone di Marsala offers a truly evocative and rare beauty landscape.
The bog pond is very long, from the coast of Marsala to Trapani, and also includes four islands, including Mozia, which in the past was, along with Lilibeo, the odiern Marsala, the most important Phoenician center in Sicily.
The view of the characteristic Windmills is Fascinating; they pumped water and grind salt: they almost seem to float on the surface of the water, and together with silence give a magical feeling.
Some of these have been rearranged, made accessible and reused as museum, restaurant or B & B.
During the day the blinding sun is reflected on the white salt, and it is possible to see the workers collecting salt in heaps that then cover with tiles and leave to dry.
The salt pans, whose operation consists of letting the water of the sea pass from one tank to another, leaving it to evaporate, produce up to ten thousand tons of sea salt per year.
The best and unmissable moment to visit the lagoon is in the afternoon, when it fills with the colors of the sunset that reflect on it giving a view of enchantment and unique emotions.
