This small museum is a fit home for the stunning bronze statue, which rightfully gets center stage. It's surrounded by other artifacts pulled from the sea. The video tells the story of the find, pulled in two parts by the same fishing vessel one year...More

This 2,000-year-old statue, found and pulled up from the bottom of the Meduterranean by a local fisherman, has been beautifully restored. A must-see in Mazara del Vallo!

Other than coming to Mazara del Vallo to eat, our main purpose was to see this statue. The museum has some local archeological pieces, but it's small and there is an obvious centerpiece. It's really quite amazing and worth spending time with. The video that...More
