Mazara is the biggest fishing port in Italy. It also has a long and interesting history: founded by the Phoenicians it was overrun by the Greeks in the fifth century BC before being recaptured by the Carthaginians in 409 BC when they destroyed Selinunte. It was one of the last Carthaginian strongholds to hold out against the Romans, falling eventually in 210BC. The Greeks will have taken control again in the sixth century AD, this time from Constantinople but Mazara then ...
