As in a title, the entry fee is about one euro, (probably 50 cents with Trapani welcome card). There are some ancient items from italian wars and nice view on the top of it. Nice historical lesson.

At the end of the tip of Trapani is the Tower of Ligny. Called a museum, but really few relics to see inside and more use as a vantage point to take photos from the roof.

This is a very interesting place and gives an excellent panoramic view of the gateway to Trapani and all at a cost of 1 Euro.

This tower is very small to visit. Entrance is only €1, and there are not that many exhibits. But most of the artifacts on display were brought out from sunken ships of centuries ago, which makes them of utmost interest. Among other things, there are...More

If you are in Trapani it's a must see. Beautiful view on Erice and Egadi Islands or simply a place to go to watch the sunset.
