Menfi is a place characterized by beautiful sea, luxuriant nature, millennial history, vineyards and sand dunes. Agricultural community has farmed the land around the Castle of Frederick: 90 houses where farmers and host families, with Licentia Populandi and the grant ad Vineas platandum of 1635, picked up the royal edict of the Spanish King Philip II. The people moved to cultivate grain – a wealth always request from the Spanish – giving the opportunity to receive 4 or 5 hectares to cultivated the vineyard. Menfi is a perfect example of right foundation, where the vine and the wine were a constant that even the 1968 earthquake has stopped. Today, Menfi has become a landmark for its food, wine and beaches. Tourists from are attracted by award winning sea and several festivals dedicated to food and wine like Inycon (the ancient name of Menfi). The area around Menfi is rich in vineyards, olive groves, natural reserves and sand dunes. Porto Palo Saracen Tower certainly worth a visit, like The Archaeological Park of Selinunte, a settlement founded by ancient Greeks, close to Castelvetrano.
