The largest of the Egadi Islands, Favignana has been described as a \"butterfly-shaped\" island by the Sicilian painter Salvatore Fiume (1915-1997). Favignana is a small world with an uncontaminated, crystalline sea and beautiful coves and bays offering excellent swimming and good scuba diving possibilities. Cala Rossa has become the symbol of the island because of the striking chromatic effect made by the turquoise sea and the surrounding white, tuff stone faces. This bay is historically important as well because it was here in 241 BC that the terrible battle between the Romans and the Carthaginians took place. In the lively town center of Favignana port are cafés, restaurants, local shops, and the medieval Fort of Santa Caterina, which sits atop a hill and dominates the bay. This fort, originally built as a watchtower and then used as a prison by the Bourbon kings (1794-1860), is surrounded by a wonderful landscape of Mediterranean scrub. Getting to Favignana takes 15-20 minutes by hydrofoils from Trapani, and from here is very easy to reach and explore the other two islands of the archipelago the small Levanzo and the rugged Marettimo and Trapani with its old town center that has recently been restored to its former splendor.
