The artwork in the Sicilian culture

By the Governance of Sicilian Artisan Foundation

The Camel Cave is located on the island of Marettimo, western Sicily. A kind of hump at the entrance is the reason for this name. Crystal clear waters flow inside. It is located in the Egadi Islands, an archipelago about 7 km from Trapani, western coast of Sicily. They are a repository of scenic beauty (Favignana, Levanzo and Marettimo) and history. Among the latter we remember Mozia (VIII B.C.), one of the three Phoenician strongholds together with Solunto and Palermo and today an entire archaeological site. The Egadi were the seats of many tuna fisheries and salt pans. We are in a Sicily with strong Arab-African contaminations. The houses are white, the cous-cous a typical dish.
