The Stagnone Reserve, Mozia, the Tonnara Transfer to the Stagnone Reserve, an extraordinary lagoon housing the oldest salt pans in the whole of the Mediterranean. The best salt in Italy comes from these saltworks and it so rich in nutritional value and flavour that its use can be reduced by up to 35%. The saltworks in this reserve, strewn with charming windmills, white mountains of salt, and the basins whose colours change from violet, to pink, to blue, create one of the most beautiful sights in Sicily. During the visit it will be possible to go into a renovated windmill and learn how the salt gets from the saltpans to our tables. It is also possible to buy the salt produced here and take it with you as a wholesome and healthy souvenir of your visit. Following this is a visit to the fascinating Phoenician site of Mozia where you can still admire the traces of this extraordinary ancient culture: the cothon (an original mooring dock), the submerged Punic road, the necropolis, the mosaics, the holy area used for human sacrifices and the splendid statue of Giovinetto, evidence of the artistic craftsmanship of the 5th century B. C.. A typical lunch at a 19th-century farmhouse that has been renovated and turned into a prestigious agritourism resort. The owners of the farmhouse also offer their visitors the opportunity of visiting the lovely farm museum and strolling in the gardens that are reminiscent of the ancient Arab-Siculian gardens. In the afternoon, a visit to an old tonnara to learn about the phases of the traditional methods of local fishing, the tuna massacre, and the processing of the tuna, a fish that holds great importance for this area. During the visit you will also be given the opportunity of trying some of the delicacies derived from tuna, such as bottarga, bresaola di tonno, mosciame, ficazza, lattume and many more, each with its own distinctive and unforgettable taste.
