Paceco is a small town that stands on a rocky hill overlooking the white salt pans of Trapani and Paceco.
Its territory was inhabited starting from remote times, already in the Paleolithic age, as evidenced by the numerous archaeological finds found on the Sciarotta hill, on which Paceco will rise. The first residential nucleus was formed starting from the 14th century and developed around the ancient church of San Lorenzo di Xitta, possession of the Order of Malta. When the fiefdom passed to the Fardella family, marquises of San Lorenzo, the old village was abandoned and, in 1607, the marquis Placido Fardella obtained the licentia aedificandi et populandi and the current town was founded.
