The city of Marsala rises on Capo Boeo and faces Favignana, with the other Egadi Islands a little further away. Marsala is famous for the landing of Garibaldi and the Thousand on 11 May 1860 and for the production of the Marsala wine of the same name. It stands on the ruins of the ancient Punic cities of Lilibeo and Mozia, located within the regional nature reserve of the Stagnone Islands of Marsala.
