Port of Trapani at 18.00 return scheduled for 20.30.
La Colombaia, also known as Torre Peliade or Castello di mare, is located on a small island at the eastern end of the port of Trapani. It is 32 meters high, made up of four superimposed floors. It is one of the best examples of military architecture in Sicily.
The Colombaia is probably the oldest and best known (together with Ligny tower) symbol of Trapani. There are several legends related to its first construction, although historians are almost all in agreement in assigning its foundation to Amilcare Barca (the father of Hannibal, the leader capable of crossing the Alps with elephants and defeating the Romans). The opportunity was given by the first Punic war.
During the Middle Ages it was rebuilt by the Aragonese in its current octagonal shape. It was enlarged around 1400, and became a fortification during the reign of Charles V, to defend the city from barbarian incursions. The last transformations underwent them in the seventeenth century on the orders of the viceroy Don Claudio Lamoraldo, Prince of Ligny. On the external wall of the tower you can still read the plaque that was affixed in 1671 by the Prince. Once the military destination was abandoned, it was transformed into a prison by the Bourbons, after the riots of 1821 and until 1860 it hosted the Sicilian patriots of the Risorgimento, including Michele Fardella, baron of Mokarta, who was mayor of Trapani in 1861
