The origins of San Vito Lo Capo are linked to an ancient legend in which the vicissitudes of a young Roman patrician, son of a high official of ancient Rome, are narrated.
One day the young man, to escape the persecutions of Diocletian, decides to flee from Mazzara, his hometown. After a few days of sailing to the north, a storm forced Vito's ship to land in a gulf protected from the wind by a rocky head well known by the sailors of the time (Egitarso or Egitallo his name) and here the three would try to convert the inhabitants of the Conturrana village, which stood about three kilometers from the sea, under a high rock. Vito, Modesto and Crescenzia were unable to convert the villagers to their faith, and indeed they were driven out and threatened by them. It was then that, as a divine punishment, a huge landslide came to bury the village and its inhabitants.
Thus the town was born, but many decades still had to pass before San Vito Lo Capo and its districts became inhabited centers in the true sense of the word. Today the hamlets of Macari and Castelluzzo are part of the same municipality, immersed in the green Sicilian countryside and very close to one of the most beautiful stretches of the Trapani coast.
