CAMPOBELLO DI MAZARA
This lovely town located in the Trapani province and counting some 13,000 inhabitants is most renowned for its olive and wine production.
Scattered across the city’s orthogonal grid, are numerous monuments of tourist interest. The most attractive of all is the 1600’s Chiesa Madre dedicated to the Madonna delle Grazie showing clear signs of the reconstruction and restructuration occurred during the 19th century.
The Museo della Vita e del Lavoro Contadino is also very interesting, providing, through reconstructions of craft workshops and works, a fine picture of the city’s rural, old daily life.
In the city environs are the Cave di Rocca di Cusa where, at one time, Selinunte’s residents extracted the limestone tufa they used to built the city. The extracting activity was interrupted, and no longer resumed since, when Chartaginians took Selinunte. Today, it is possible to experience the various phases of the stone extraction and processing.
