Santa Ninfa

Province of Trapani

Santa Ninfa holds an impressive artistic heritage and it is well known for the Castle of Rampinzeri and the Museum of Nino Cordio.

Santa Ninfa was founded in 1605 by Luigi Arias Giardina who started the construction of the main buildings of the village, it soon became a popolar Baronial Feud. The old town centre was completely destroyed by the 1968 earthquake and the village was isolated for a long time. The artistic heritage of the town of Santa Ninfa was heavily damaged by the earthquake, but today it is possible to visit the Castle of Rampinzeri and the Museum of Nino Cordio, an important Sicilian sculptor and painter. The museum displays his works of art such as impressive frescos, paintings and sculptures.

Close to Santa Ninfa, there is a well preserved Necropolis and a wonderful green area, the Nature Reserve of Grotta Santa Ninfa managed by WWF, it was created in 1996 to protect the suggestive Karst environment of the area.
