Things to do: beaches, adventure, historic sites
San Vito Lo Capo is a town and comune in North-Western Sicily, Italy, administratively part of the province of Trapani. It has 3,914 inhabitants as of 2004. The small town is located in a valley between spectacular mountains, and is home to a public beach popular with local vacationers. The town's primary industries are tourism and agriculture, particularly olive groves owned by small farmers.The town's eastern border is provided by a small range of mountains, the northernmost of which is peaked by a large cross visible from the public beach below. The mountain is popular with local climbers, and a logbook is provided at the cross for climbers to record their adventures. The mountain is also home to numerous caves, most of which are inaccessible without professional climbing gear. A particular cave, accessible by foot at the southern base of the mountain, was named "Caverna della Capra Guasto," or "Cave of the Dead Goat" by explorers Christian D'Angelo and William Spears. The adventurers famously explored the cave's interior using only a camera flash for light, and provide the first historical record of the cave's penetration by humans.San Vito lo Capo is home to many small eateries targeting the beachgoing market; of those the most well-known is the historical Cafe Europa, famous for its specialty, the Panini con Panelle.To the south, there is the Riserva naturale dello Zingaro.EventsSince 1998, the town hosts the "Cous Cous Fest", an international festival of culture and gastronomy of the Mediterranean. This is a cooking contest that pits chefs from eight countries – Côte d'Ivoire, France, Israel, Italy, Morocco, Senegal, and Tunisia, plus the Palestinian Territories – in a cook-off based on their culinary traditions.
