Mazara del Vallo

Provincia: TP - Area: Selinunte and Belice Valley

Mazara del Vallo is a multi-ethnic city and its proximity to Tunisia has exercised a strong influence over the centuries.
The Islamic influence is visible in the perfectly preserved urban layout of the city: the presence of narrow streets in the center can be associated with those of the Islamic medinas. In Mazara, during the Middle Ages, four ethnic groups coexisted which gave rise to four distinct neighborhoods: the Latins, the Greeks, the Muslims and the Jews. In the Islamic quarter the Kasbah can still be admired today.
Mazara is the city of the dancing Satyr, named after a very precious Hellenic statue kept in the city.
