A 3 Day Mini Cruise to explore the Egadi Islands
Le Egadi Islands they 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 e Favignana to Sicily, unlike Marettimo which detached from the mainland was already an island. Primitive men settled along the coasts living off hunting, fishing, collecting shellfish and fruits spontaneously given by mother earth. They lived in caves such as those of Uccerie and Madonna a Favignana, in the Faraglioni area. But the most significant presence of these men inside the caves is certainly given to us by the "Genoese cave” a Levanzo. Dating back to the Paleolithic - Neolithic, this cave-sanctuary houses precious graffiti and paintings that tell us, thanks to an uncommon mastery and artistic ability, the life of these our predecessors: their spiritual sphere, their propitiatory dances for hunting, caught 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, they reached the waters of the Egadi islands the Phoenicians. In fact the Egadi were in a strategic position by virtue of the fact that Sicily became the theater for their intense and profitable commercial traffic. The Phoenicians settled in Favignana in the north-eastern area of San Nicola. Traces of their settlement remain in the caves used as homes, sacred places and tombs.
Simultaneously with the presence of the Phoenicians in the Mediterranean, Rome loomed on the horizon and was laying the foundations for what would later become an empire of immense borders.
