EGADI MINI CRUISE

EGADI MINI CRUISE

A 3 Day Mini Cruise to explore the Egadi Islands

 

The Egadi Islands have been a crossroads of peoples in every age. The first human settlements date back to the Paleolithic era, when small tribes of primitive men crossed the thin strip of land that united Levanzo and Favignana to Sicily, unlike Marettimo which detached itself from the mainland was already an island. Primitive men settled along the coasts living by hunting, fishing, collecting molluscs and fruits spontaneously given by the mother earth. They lived in caves such as those of Uccerie and Madonna in Favignana , in the Faraglioni area. But the most significant presence of these men inside the caves is certainly given to us by the " Grotta del Genovese " in Levanzo . Dating back to the Paleolithic - Neolithic, this cave-sanctuary preserves precious graffiti and paintings that tell us, thanks to an uncommon artistic skill and skill, the experience of these our predecessors: their spiritual sphere, their propitiatory dances for hunting, captured prey and so on.

Around 6,000 BC, the strip of land that connected Favignana and Levanzo to the mainland gradually became thinner and thinner until the two finally became separate islands.

 

The Phoenician period, the Romans and the First Punic War

With the advent of the first navigators from the East, driven by their commercial activities, the Phoenicians arrived in the waters of the Egadi islands. In fact, the Egadi Islands were in a strategic position by virtue of the fact that Sicily became the theater for their intense and profitable trade. The Phoenicians settled in Favignana in the north-eastern area of ​​San Nicola. Traces of their settlement remain in the caves used as a dwelling, sacred place and tombs.

Simultaneously with the presence of the Phoenicians in the Mediterranean, Rome was looming on the horizon, laying the foundations for what would later become an empire with immense borders.
