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 made up mainly 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 bred including a monkey, Tibetan goats, fallow deer, Pantelleria donkeys and various species of birds. Several species of ducks and geese have been introduced into a small artificial lake, all to make the outing more pleasant and contribute to the environmental education of the new generations. The area is very popular throughout the year.

Note on Sources

The information on the equipped state-owned areas has as its main source the website of the Regional Forestry Department of Sicily (continuously updated) to which is added a very interesting brochure entitled "The State Equipped Areas in Sicily" of the same department published in 1999 with the Editorial Coordination of the 8th Group - Promotion, Development and Research, editors Agostino Gatto and Valeria Restuccia. Further information was obtained from direct access to the areas and from interviews with experts and operators in the sector.
