A butterfly-shaped island, this is how the Sicilian painter Salvatore Fiume (1915-1997) described Favignana, the largest of the Egadi Islands. Favignana is a small world with unpolluted, crystalline sea in dream bays offering excellent swimming and good scuba-diving possibilities, such as the sheltered Cala Rotonda with its natural rock arch; the charming Cala Azzurra with its crystal clear waters; the imposing Cala Rossa which has become the symbol of the island, also because of the striking chromatic effect made by the turquoise sea and the surrounding white, tuff stone faces. This bay still evokes history because here was fought in 241 BC the terrible battle between the Romans and the Carthaginians. Today it is one of the most
eye-catching places to see the old quarries of tuff, a volcanic rock whose mining used to be in the past one of the main activities on the island. Also the tuna fishing industry represented a main part of the local economy and it is still bound to its fishing traditions with the imposing Tonnara Florio (tuna fishery), situated near the port, as one of the last traces of this interesting fishing folklore. Just a stone's throw away from this building, in the lively town centre, are the cafés, restaurants and the local workshops; whereas the ancient medieval part of the island, dominated by the Fort of Santa Caterina, is situated on a mount and reachable by steps. This fort, originally built as a watchtower and then used as a prison by the Bourbon kings
(1794-1860), is surrounded by a wonderful landscape of Mediterranean scrub. Getting to Favignana takes 15-20 minutes by hydrofoil from Trapani, and from here it’s easy to reach and explore the other two islands of the archipelago - the small Levanzo and the rugged Marettimo - and Trapani with its historic town centre that has recently been restored to its former splendour. Hydrofoil and ferry connections from the ports of Trapani and Marsala.
Recently renovated characteristic fisherman's cottage on the enchanting island of Favignana, 20 minutes by hydrofoil from the port of Trapani. The apartment is situated just a few steps away from the promenade and the island's busy little centre with its cafés, restaurants and local arts and crafts shops. Ideal for a couple, Profumo di Mare offers a pleasant view of the island of Levanzo from its small, equipped terrace. The dwelling, furnished tastefully and with elegant simplicity, includes a living-dining area, kitchen and en-suite double bedroom and is an excellent base for visiting the island's treasures. Favignana is renowned for its beautiful sunny beaches, its waters so ideal for diving and for its nature. Its proximity to the mainland allows for
excursions to western Sicily, and the other two islands of the archipelago, Levanzo and unspoilt Marettimo, are certainly worth a visit.
