Trapani is a city in western Sicily with a crescent coast. On the western tip, overlooking the Egadi Islands, there is the Torre di Ligny watchtower of 17th century, which houses the Museum of Prehistory and Marine Archeology.

To the north of the port, the Church of Purgatory preserves wooden sculptures that parade through the city during the Procession of the Mysteries at Easter. Further to the east, there is the Basilica-sanctuary of Maria Santissima Annunziata, with the sought-after bell tower.

The Sanctuary houses a much venerated marble sculpture of the Madonna of Trapani, Patron Saint of the city.

Nearby, inside a former Carmelite monastery, the Agostino Pepoli Regional Museum preserves the majolica ceramics, jewelery and coral works, including an intricate 17th-century nativity scene.

To the west, the gardens of Villa Margherita host tropical plants and an open-air theater where classical music concerts are held during the July Musicale Trapanese festival.
