IS IT THE END....OR THE BEGINNING? / E' LA FINE ....O L'INIZIO?

There is a place in Trapani which I have literally fallen in love with. Where Italy begins or ends, depending on whether you come from the sea or from inland.  It's at the very tip of the city, in fact it's the North-Western-most point of Sicily itself.  The TORRE  DI LIGNY. Originally it was built as a watchtower, to warn local people of possible attacks from the sea, now it has been turned into a museum. Located between the Tyrrhenian Sea and the Mediterranean Sea, it is a  fascinating place, the air is unbelievably clean and fresh. I can just sit here for hours looking out into the open sea.

 Below you can see the Tyrrhenian Sea on the right, and the Mediterranean Sea on the left.


Here I'm standing behind the tower, this is where the two seas meet. Notice how tightly I am holding on to the railing, it's pretty scary here, below you have rocks and the deep sea. Just until a few years ago there was no railing and it was terrifying to walk around the tower, but exhilarating at the same time.

Fishermen at work below the tower.

  1. Beautiful photos! I can't get over how warm it looks and how summery you look. How nice. Here it is rather cold. I remember when you showed us a photo of the snow you had but it looks like your winter arrives much later than ours. Keep smiling :-)

  11. Francesca, Very nice photos! I'd be down on those rocks with the fishermen seeing what I could catch...and whatever I caught, they could take home with them. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave
