Town of Favignana
Marettimo The Essential
Situated at the foot of the mountain, this fishing village consists of white, cubic houses with terraced roofs. The village has two harbours: the Scalo Nuevo, the modern port, and the Scalo Vecchio, used by the village's fishermen and which leads to the headland of Punta Troia, crowned by a Spanish castle. Boat trips around the island leave from the landing stage and are a good way to explore the coastline, which is dotted with superb caves and sheer cliffs.
