Trabia is a village located on the coast, 34 km east of Palermo, on the sea route 113 that goes to Cefalù and Messina.
Within proximity there are former buildings of the tuna fisheries from the 16th century and also a small tourist port. The main house is surrounded by an ancient loquat garden known as “Big Garden of Principi Lanza di Trabia;”the Lanza family being one of the most important aristocratic families of Sicily. Their suggestive Castle built in the 10th century on sea rocks, is at only 200 m of distance from Villa Cecilia and can be visited on request.
The villa is conveniently located for cultural/artistic tours in western Sicily (tours can be organised by the concierge team). Sicily is proud to be the Italian region with the highest number of UNESCO cultural sites (9 out of the 51 Italian sites are in Sicily).
