Terrasini

Trip Planner Europe  /  Italy  /  Sicily  /  Province of Palermo  /  Terrasini
Terrasini is a town and comune in the Province of Palermo on the island of Sicily in Italy.DataTerrasini is located west of Palermo at the motorway between Palermo and Trapani, between the mountains and the Gulf of Castellammare near the Palermo International Airport.Terrasini's population works mainly in fishing and tourism. The population triples during the summer.Bounding communes are: Carini, Cinisi, Partinico and Trappeto.HistoryThe name Terrasini probably derives from Latin "terra sinus" = "land at the gulf" (the Gulf of Castellamare) or from "terra sinorum" = "land of the bays" due to the strongly curved coastline with a large number of larger and smaller bays. The name was first cited for the region in a letter of saint Martin della Scale of November 24, 1350 as "terras vocatas li Terrasini".The grottoes in the area of Terrasini were inhabited already in the late paleolithic times. On different sites, tracks of Roman settlers were found.The origin of the town goes back to the late medieval times to a small settlement (called Favarotta) of agricultural workers on the large-scale landed property of the family "La Grua Talamanca" from Carini.
