Ligny tower was erected in the extreme strip of Sicily around 1670 by the prince of Ligne, Captain General of the Kingdom of Sicily, to protect the town from pirate raids.
It became a characterizing element of Trapani.
Today is completely restored.
The tower houses the Civic Museum, with prehistoric finds and a marine archaeological room with finds recovered from the surrounding seabeds, including some helmets and the rostrums of Roman ships used during the Punic Wars.
The tower is open Tuesday to Saturday from 10:00 to 12:30 and from 16:00 to 18:30 in winter, from 17:00 to 19:30 in summer; Sundays and holidays only in the afternoon.
The admission ticket is 1 euro.
