Marsala, famous for its Dessert Wines, is an Italian town located in the Province of Trapani in the most western part of Sicily. Marsala is the most populous town in Trapani. The town is famous for the landing of Garibaldi on 11 May 1860 (the Expedition of the Thousand) and for its Marsala wine. A feature of the area is the natural reserve of Stagnone Lagoon—a marine area with salt ponds. Marsala is built on the ruins of the ancient Carthaginian city Lilybaion and includes the archaeological site of Motya island, an ancient Phoenician town.
