It was founded as a marine trading centre for the merchants of nearby Segesta; used later by the Phoenicians and then the Romans. In medieval times it became a stronghold with the castle built by the Arabs. Between the XV and the XVIII centuries, the port became a strategic point for commercial flow.
The castle, of Arab origin, enlarged in Norman and Swabian times, was the most important fortress of Western Sicily, and contains elements of great architectural importance. The medieval spiral stairway sits inside a circular keep, with the door and architraves featuring late gothic decorative patterns.
The castle holds an interesting scientific-museum centre featuring many exhibitions: archaeology with anchor stocks and Roman amphorae; marine activity and equipment for sailing and tuna fishing; Nostra Principalissima Patrona dedicated to the festivities in honour of the Madonna del Soccorso; and“Castellamare on set”, with documentation about films, series, advertisements and reality shows filmed in Castellammare.

In an old fishermen's house in the ancient maritime town is a small Museum of the Sea which holds various pieces of marine tools and equipment from tuna fish warehouses, once numerous in the gulf.
The Mother Church is the most important of the religious buildings. It holds the statue in majolica of the Madonna del Soccorso.
The church of Madonna delle Scale (XVII century) is situated on the slope of the mountain.
The ex-monastery of the Padri Crociferi (1659) is now the Town Hall. In the immediate vicinity of Castellammare, the baglio (rural fortified structure) of Inici and the castle of Balata di Baida, have resisted the tests of time.
Celebrations to honour the patron saint Maria SS del Soccorso, run from the 19th to 21st August. In the port, there is a remarkable historical re-enactment of the miracle carried out by the Madonna in 1718, when five English ships who were pursuing a Spanish merchant ship were made to flee. Spectators can enjoy the spectacular fireworks, play games on the beach and in the water, and shop at various stalls.

“Perfect stay in great location”
We stayed in Villa Spiaggia Playa for one week in June with 3 our kids (age 7,4,2). It was perfect relaxing place with beautiful view and wonderful garden where we felt our kids to be safe. The beach is just across the street. In the villa you can find everything you need and what is most important- the host Anna Maria was so kind and helpful. We would reccomend this place for vacation and hope to be back.
“!!! Beautiful VILLA !!!!”
Wonderful villa near the beach. The villa was spotlessly clean on arrival, and had a very welcome arrival pack of water, wine and friuts. The beds were comfortable, as were the settee's, something unusual in a holiday let. The kitchen had everything you could need, food grater, bin bags, washing up liquid, hand soaps etc very handy if you are just there for a week to not have to buy these items.The villa had all we could need : DVD player, books, radio/CD player, parasol for the balcony, washing machine, all the extras that make it exceptional. Free wifi. I would definitely recommend this villa, and we are currently looking at booking for going back next year, we enjoyed ourselves so much.
We have spent a wonderful holiday at Villa Spiaggia with our family. The house is situated in perfect place just a minute from the beach and it is furnished by everything we have needed for our comfort vacation (dishwasher, aircondition, microwave oven, dvd, wifi...) We have also apprecfiated the warm approach of hosts Anna Maria nad Rosario. We felt in love with surrounding garden and having rest in magnific garden living room. We often visited the fish market in Castellammare and prepared bought fresh fish in outside grill. Amazing!!!! We will come back next year for sure!!!!
“Great spacious family friendly villa opposite beach.”
We stayed at villa spiaggia playa for 4 nights in early April. It was perfect for us, a family of 5 (3 boys aged 7,4 & 1). The garden which encircles the villa but majority is at rear was totally enclosed (no escape routes for children) and the property feels very secure with gated entrance. There are a few steps outside but our 1 year old had his big brothers to help him as well as us. We had a couple of BBQs, we went down to the harbour in Castellamare del golfo about 4pm and bought fish directly off the fishermen ( "that one's still moving" exclaimed our 7 year old, he then gutted and prepared the catch with the guidance of daddy at the outside sink handily situated next to the BBQ.) The villa is clean and spacious inside and the kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. Modern feel to decor. Anna Maria (owner) was lovely, she had supplied us with some local food to start us off including some of her own organic lemons. Recycling bins provided. Deposit returned no problem straight away at end. Nice big dining table outside near BBQ & lots of seating, sun loungers in garden. The temperature at the beginning of April (7th-12th) was about 20/22 degrees. Most days we were able to wear shorts, t-shirts, had to slip on jumpers occasionally, with jeans & jumpers in evening. The Italians were all wearing winter coats which we found very funny! Wild flowers & lush green mountainous landscape everywhere this time of year, beautiful. The area was very quiet as the season hadn't started yet, which we really liked, we were practically the only tourist there. It would be a completely different atmosphere in height of summer, can imagine quite a buzz. Own parking space within property which would be essential in peak season as we were told it gets very busy as villa right on seafront. If we went back we would choose a similar time or maybe May/June late Sept/oct. For us personally I can imagine July & August being too busy - but we are a young family, & you might want it lively and busy! Top tip for the area was the natural hot springs in Segesta Terme. Find on google maps, cross cold river to get to in beautiful gorge surroundings. You need a car to get around to make most of Tranpani region. We stayed a week near Cefalu after this villa and whilst that area is amazing in other ways Trapani had better beaches and we preferred this villa.
Very nice and lovely house with all facilities in small nice and charming town. The hosts were great, helpful and very friendly. Beautiful surroundings and the sand beach nice and friendly for long walking.
“The best holiday”
A few days past since we have returned from the sunny Sicily! It was gorgeous and relaxing trip in a very conveniently located place in a very smart house! The villa impressed us with its size, interesting design and how fully deviced it was! But the most important that it was located closely to the luxoryous sunny beach and pure warm sea. Only fifty steps and you are on a free chaise-longue under an umbrella. In the evening you can spend time in local cafes, which you can find either on The Playa or in Castellamare. It very convenient to use touristic train at night to visit Castellamare and get back. Or you can cook the food by yourself on barbecue and have a meal on the big table in the garden. In a 5 minutes of walking there is a supermarket where you can buy all necessary food products. We visited Palermo twice by the bus, which stops not far away from the villa. The trip takes 1-1.5 hours. The Internet access was important for us and it was both in the house and the beach. Particularly, we want to thank Anna Maria and Rosario for their hospitality. They are very nice and considerate people who care about their guests and support them with all necessary information. And we were glad to get acquainted with such a good people! Family from Russia (3 persons).
We returned to Castellammare, choosing self-catering accommodation rather than a hotel this time, having my 20 and 18 yr old children with us. Anna Maria's lovely house more than met our requirements and expectations. The garden in particular, is very special with superb views over the mountains. The house is very well equipped, with a lovely family feeling. Anna Maria was so kind, waiting for us to arrive late at night, and leaving wonderful fresh fruit, bottled water, local wine and an easy to cook supper for us. The beach and sea are so close, beautiful to swim in. Castellammare town is a short walk, bursting with great restaurants and bars, and good value boat hire for pottering along the coast/marine nature reserve. Watch out for expensive fuel though.
