Mazara del Vallo has a long history. The city has been known since the time of the Phoenicians, who turned it into a commercial center. During the period of occupation by the Arabs, the town became one of the main districts on the island. The Arab influence is still visible in the narrow streets and historical monuments. The old quarter of 'Kasba' and its mosque were built upon an existing church. S. Nicolò Regal is one of the most important examples of Normanisch Arabic architecture. Thanks to the Vikings, the city is rich in churches and monasteries. One example is the magnificent cathedral which was built in 1093 and then rebuilt in baroque style in 1694. The holiday complex is adjacent to the WWF Nature Reserve Lago Preola e Gorghi Tondi. In this part of Sicily, you can enjoy a relaxing holiday by the sea, but you can also visit numerous historical and archaeological areas.
