Mazara del Vallo has a charming old town centre and its narrow streets are characterised by the typical Islamic layout called Casbah.
Mazara del Vallo is located at the mouth of the river Màzaro and is only 200km from the coast of Tunisia. This historic old town once enclosed within Norman walls, includes many monumental churches some of which date back to the eleventh century. The narrow streets of the old centre are characterised by the typical Islamic layout called Casbah. For this reason in the town it is possible to smell the spicy aromas of the Arab world united with the magnificence of Norman civilisation. The village also provides lots of cultural attractions like the Museo Civico with ruins of the Paleolitic period, medieval sculptures, paintings of the seventeenth century and ceramics dating back to the Arabian period, while the Diocesan Museum displays important material and sacred objects from the Cathedral’s treasury. If you’d prefer to go shopping or relax with a tasty local dinner, Piazza Mokarta is considered the ideal destination to find plenty of shops and restaurants.
