A bit of history...

Built in the fourteenth century in the Partenia forest of Frederick of Aragon, Trappeto slowly became a land rich in vineyards and citrus groves overlooking the sea, furrowed at a time of sailing ships loaded with sugar and wine - which are now loaded with tourists and holiday makers instead!

The name "Trappetum Cannamelarum" originates from the first construction of a mill (in 1480) for the extraction and refining of Cannamela sugar cane next to a fortified tower, like many of today's existing Arabic - Norman style towers that crown the surrounding territory's rich history of constant battle between Christians and Moors - Saracens. 

The first houses of the village were, for the most part, fishermen's houses, built around the Chiesa dell'Annunziata (Church of the Annunciation - 1680) located directly in the historical heart of the village. For centuries Trappeto has been populated by farmers and fishermen who have always mixed the sweetness of their natural products with the bitterness of a burdensome life of hardship and emigration to a Sicily oppressed by the Mafia.  

Immediately after the war, Trappeto became a symbol of complete misery, moved by the most sensitive souls of Italy and Europe, but thanks to the work of Danilo Dolci who, at the study centre of Borgo di Dio (1968) located on a hilltop of the town, single-handedly spread the cultural wealth and humanity of these Sicilians.

From then on began the revival by the same Trappetesi as before, driven by a renewed praise for a destiny of inevitable progress.  Trappeto has become a destination chosen for enthusiastic and loyal tourism that, in a town sunken in greenery and multicoloured houses of fishermen adorned with countless murals, still finds time to relax and enjoy social life.
