Favignana: let's discover the butterfly on the sea

The archipelago of Egadi is situated 15 miles from the western coast of Sicily. It consists of three main islands, Favignana, Levanzo and Marettimo. And two islets, Maraone e Formica. Favignana is the most famous and visited. It is characterized by its wonderful beaches with emerald water, white houses with blue doors, rocky coasts, abandoned quarries and hidden caves. Nido del Pellegrino covers seven hectares of this beautiful island. In front of the sea, it faces the Preveto islet. For those who have already been here and for those who would like to visit us, we briefly tell about Favignana, sharing with you some of the most important sites of interest.

Favignana is the largest and most equipped of Egadi Islands. It is dominated by St. Catherine mountain where it is to visit the Saracen Fort on the top. It has some of the most beautiful coves of the archipelago. In Favignana, the slaughter was practised until few years ago . It was both a traditional and sustainable kind of tuna fishing and a bloody spectacles which intrigues a lot of tourists. 

If you want to discover the town you can start from the port where you can meet some fishermen who darn their nets. Walking towards the heart of the town you meet Villa Florio. This beautiful neo-Gothic building was built in 1878 on a project of one of the most famous architects of those years, Damiani Almeyda. Passing through Piazza Europa (where at the centre there is a statue dedicated to Ignazio Florio), you get Piazza Madrice which takes its name from the church dedicated to the Virgin. Got to the square, you can choose among several tours. The most important are the tour at the St. Anne neighbourhood (the oldest part of the village where you can find the most ancient and beautiful houses) and the route which leads to ex Tonnara Florio which is a museum today.
