Castellammare del Golfo is an important rural and commercial centre situated on the north-western coast of Sicily, exactly 70 Km away on the western side of Palermo. Castellamare was the seat of the ancient Segesta's emporium and the chief landing place to Erice and Segesta. In 827 A.D. - under the rule of the Arabs who built up their fortress there - Castellammare became an invincible stronghold. In the following centuries the present "castello a mare" was enlarged and fortified by the Normans. A splendid coast - rich in little creeks with
low soundings together with rough rocks and needle-shaped marine crags lapped by crystalline waters - is characteristic of the natural environment of the Gulf of Castellammare. Worth visiting are the Castle, the Mother Church, the "Al Madarig" flight of steps, and the seafaring activities' museum.
