Martogna state-owned equipped area
From Trapani, in the direction of Erice, less than 2 Km. From the provincial capital, in the wooded complex that has been called "Monte Erice" a beautiful equipped area has been created which due to its proximity to the town and its happy location and soon became a must for hikers and hikers in general, nature lovers.
The tree cover is mainly made up of Mediterranean pines with the presence of eucalyptus and oak species, the latter plants that will gradually take over from the pines for "crop conversion". In a man-made environment, which soon received unanimous appreciation, an equipped area was created with the collaboration on site of many wooden benches and tables, a playground for children, several drinking fountains, toilets and creation of a wildlife area where various animals are raised including a monkey, Tibetan goats, fallow deer, Pantelleria donkeys and various species of birds. In a small artificial lake, various species of ducks and geese have been introduced, all to make the picnic more pleasant and contribute to the environmental education of the new generations. The area is very popular throughout the year.
