There’so much history, beauty and culture in Castelvetrano, a small town near Trapani
To fully appreciate the uniqueness of this town of over 30,000 inhabitants, let’s enter the old town which still retains a certain aristocratic character due to its early history, related to the Tagliavia family, the ancient lords of the city; we can feel an atmosphere of never fallen nobility.
Let’s go straight to the Church of San Domenico, built in 1470 by the Tagliavias and completed by Don Carlo d’Aragona. A recent restoration has made it available to visitors so let the rich and harmonious decoration of its interior and the beautiful stucco Antonio Ferrara dazzle us. Once walking into the church we immediately understand why it is deemed the Sistine Chapel of Sicily.
