Marettimo is the farthest - on the western side of Sicily - and the most mountainous of the Egadi Islands - the ancient Hiera (sacred island in Greek language) of the Greeks - is nearly 37 Km away from Trapani, and 600,000 years ago was the first of the Egadi Islands to become detached from Sicily, so allowing the growth and conservation of some curious fauna and flora which are not found elsewhere on the Egadi islands. The unchanged nature is the strong point of this fishing island where car transit is forbidden and everything is within easy walking distance in the only inhabited area The town is divided into three zones following one another in the space of ten or so metres: Scalo Nuovo (where hydrofoils and ferries dock), Scalo di Mezzo and Scalo Vecchio (Old Fishing Ports). The low white houses with bright blue-coloured doors and shutters, narrow roads and Lilliputian-like tiny squares. Has caught the imagination of some scholars who believe it to be the real Ulysses' Ithaca narrated by Homer in his Odyssey poem. Boat tours organised by skilled local fishermen will take you on a discovery of Punta Troia and its Castle (XII century) built on a rocky cliff (116 metres high above sea level) overhanging the sea; and then towards several caves as Grotta del Tuono, Grotta del Cammello, Grotta della Bombarda and also to the fantastic area called i Barranchi characterized by high and large towers of white and grey-coloured dolomite rock. Just look up and in a moment youll feel like youre inside the Dolomite mountainscapes of Trentino Alto Adige. Not less spectacular is the landscape - which you can admire along the different footpaths of the hinterland, immersed in the fragrances of thyme, rosemary, Aleppo pine-trees and wild fennel - overlooked from the top of Monte Falcone (Falcone Mount, 686 metres above sea level). Here - suspended between sky and sea - one comes upon the magic and spirit of Marettimo which has been defined definitely the most beautiful Italian island after Capri by Fulco Pratesi.
