I fuochi di San Giuseppe - The fires of San Giuseppe

Marettimo is the most distant and mountainous island of the Egadi archipelago. Strengthened by wild and untouched nature, it is a marine park situated between Italy and Africa. Its intense blue backdrop, numerous grottos and rocky cliffs render it a unique destination for those who love the sea, diving and archeology.

You can reach the grottos via boat thanks to the traditional trip around the island at sunset, a service offered by the islanders from a number of points around the islands.

A unique journey that leads to the discovery of the Grotta del Cammello, del Tuono, della Pipa and the Grotta del Presepio. Here, one can distinguish forms that seem like statues, but which which are actually stalactites and stalagmites, eroded by the sea and wind.

Two excursions not to be missed are the one to Castle of Punta Troia, a Bourbon fortress once used as a prison, and that to Monte Falcone, the highest peak in the Egadi archipelago. From here in mid-March, you can see the "Duminara" ritual, in honour of St. Joseph, the patron saint of Marettimo, during which three bonfires symbolising the members of the Holy Family burn in the piazza.

How to reach the Siremar departure point:
