Marsala…the ancient Stagnone Lagoon and the Saline
Stagnone Lagoon and Marsala Saline!
To little kilometres from Marsala historical center ther’is a surreal landscape: the Stagnone Lagoon with Mothia, mythical and archeological island.
The ‘Stagnone’ is a natural reserve and the greatest lagoon of the whole Sicily. It offers to the visitor sea, green islets, reeds, wind mills, white salt dunes, tiles and wonderful sunsets with the sky colored of purple, gold, orange, red..
The characteristic of the Reserve is the surely presence of the Saline (Salt Pans), artificial tubs for the salt extraction, create on the coast in ancient times and still today existents. Born in fact under the Phoenician domination, alternating prosperity moments of abandonment moments, they have come productive up to us. Now a proud but simple combination of sun, water and wind creates a very good sea salt, worked today as once.
The landscape, with Saline and wind mills, seems a picture of other times.
Among the Mills, one, that of Ettore Infersa, entertains the Salt Museum.
Then the landscape is adorned by typical Mediterranean flowers, Palm tree, and migratory birds.. Infact is not difficult, especially in determined periods of the year, to see Italy Riders, Ducks, Herons and White and Pink Flamingos.
The Lagoon is frequented also from Kitesurf or Windsurf, because the zone is exposed to all winds.
The Lagoon has 4 islets. Among these Mothia, a real museum to the open space of the punic-Phoenician civilization. They are only few hundred meters to separate the island of Mozia from the land. Anciently a road connected Mozia to Marsala, now this road is submerged, but still visible and practicable with the low tide.
Today Mozia island is easily reached in 10 minutes with some typical boats.When you arrive realize that it is a small natural and archaeological miracle. The excursion is along the perimeter of the island to the discovery the rests of ancient staircases, residences, mosaics and then the Cothon, rare example of artificial punic Port, the Tophet, the sacred area of the human sacrifices. Finally the Whitaker Museum with the ‘Giovinetto di Mozia’, a beautiful Greek statue to natural greatness, of the V sec. a.C.
The Lagoon and the Reserve are beautiful in everytime. I suggest walking, go by bike and if the weather is beautiful go by canoe on the Lagoon: the colors of this angle of sea will stay with you in the memory and in the heart…
