Welcome to the reserve

Through these web pages we will tell you the fascination and the beauty of the first natural oriented reserve . The sharp line of Dolomitic calcareous rocks which form the Reserve extends, in the western part, from the Gulf of Castellammare , along the eastern side of Capo San Vito peninsula that is on the Tirreno sea between Castellammare del Golfo and Trapani. The territory of the reserve starts from Cala Mazzo in Sciacca up to Tonnarella Dell’Uzzo and it extends mostly in the town of San Vito Lo Capo and only in part in that of Castellammare del Golfo. "Questo angolo di paradiso ancora pulito, questa vegetazione spontanea e forte che sposa l'intenso azzurro di un cielo terso al cangiante colore di un mare dalle acque limpide e cristalline, è uno scrigno aperto laddove la terra profuma ancora di terra ed il mare profuma ancora di mare, due componenti che ispirano allo studio, alla meditazione alla distensione fisica e spirituale." (G. Battaglia)
