Castelvetrano is a commune within the province of Trapani and includes Selinunte and Trichina. The inland central city is rather small with about 14,000 in population. It has some notoriety for its olives in the surrounding fertile land, making olive oil a major business in the area. Of course there is the making of wine, which exists many places on the island of Sicily, each local are sometimes claiming it is the best in all of Sicily. The city fell into rather poor shape, but has made some urban development in recent years. It contains some old churches, but the main attractions nearby is Selinunte, including the archeological park (reviewed here) and marina beach. The name comes from castle and veteranus (derived from Latin vetus, -eris, i.e. old), and refers to an ancient castle located in the area. Sadly, nothing remains of its original structure.
