Castellammare del Golfo

What to do in Castellammare del Golfo

Set in a beautiful gulf, lapped by crystal clear sea, Castellammare del Golfo is one of the most beautiful coastlines in Sicily. Wrapped in an atmosphere jealously tied to its traditions, Castellammare has conserved all of its stupendous natural scenery, monuments and lanes that make up the historical center, dominated by the castle, the antique outpost of the city, which today houses a permanent museum and exhibitions.

Castellammare was born as the Port of close by Segesta (Emporium Segestanorum) and since the arrival of the Arabs its history has been identified with the city.

When the Arabs arrived in the early 1800s the town was named Al Madarig. At the beginning of the second millennium, Castellammare was first an important Norman fortress, then for the Svevis and then the battle centre between the Argons and the Aragonese. The war ended with the victory of Federico II and commercial activities by the Argons was forbidden due to treason.

Castellammare grew again after the Vespers, in the Aragonese period (1281-1410) when the town was baronial and owned by Federico d'Antiochia and became an important commercial center linked to grain export.

In 1700 and 1800 the town continued to grow as a result of the economic development of the Port.
