Riserve Naturali Saline di Trapani e Paceco
Apart from the procession on Good Friday, it is the salt pans that characterize Trapani. The extraction of salt is no more the main economic activity of Trapani like it used to be for centuries, but it is nowadays the city's most fascinating and important tourist attraction. The area is of particular interest for its flora and fauna - the salt pans are a refuge to thousands of migrating birds every year. The pink flamingos in the blue lagoon make a wonderful motive for photos. Well worth a visit are the historical salt museum and the salt marshes of Nubia, same as the salt mill Ettore e Infersa.
The Saline di Trapani e Paceco are a WWF Natural Reserve
