Terrasini, at the impressive Gulf of Castellammare

 

Terrasini is located between Palermo and Trapani, 24 km west of Palermo, 32 meters above sea level on the vast, impressive Gulf of Castellammare, in the past the scene of historical events and sailed by Greek and Roman Phoenicians sailing ships. Now a tourist center with a population of about 10,000, a number that easily triples in the summer months, not only because of the beautiful location of the town but also for the hospitality of its people. Terrasini was named most probably after his interspersed coast with grottos and caves, from the Latin “terraesinus”.
