“Very well preserved museum!”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

It is a very nice and well preserved salt museum perched on an inland of Nubia frazione di Paceco.... As soon as you head out of the Birgi town and a very short drive you arrive to this small but beautifully settled place. This is a small museum but great in information about this very old trade. It consists of a small typical trapanese restaurant and as soon as you enter it you smell that sea water smell... Aaahhhh very relaxing! Approximetely you enter a small door to this small museum and you find yourself inside a well preserved windmill.... A big room filled with all the tools (old) that used to be used back in time. You can go up the stairs to get a magnificent view of the sea and the city of Trapani.

“An atmospheric and fascinating place”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

The salt museum, at Nubia (near Paceco) is a good place to start. Old equipment, old photos and diagrams give fascinating background information to the salt-making process. (There is a good restaurant attached to this 300 year old building, which has a restored windmill.) The 16th century tower of Nubia is nearby - you can't miss it.
Surrounding the museum are the lagoons of sea water, of different depth, in which the sea salt is formed as the water evaporates. If you are lucky you will see them digging the salt and piling it into huge heaps beside the pans.
Further down the coast, near the island of Mozia and the small town of Salinagrande, are more salt pans, and several windmills. The road runs beside the pans so it is a paradise for photographers, especially if they are digging salt. The Egardi islands are visible just off the coast. As you are facing west, there are usually glorious sunsets which makes the area very romantic and picturesque.
