The Castle

The name of Trabia derives from Arabic at tarbìah that means "the square" referring to its quadrangular town-planning.

Old Arabic countryhouse, Trabia was full of water and mills.

In the XIV century the little town was supplied with an operating tonnara (tuna station) called St. Nicola.

In 1635 prince Ottavio Lanza founded the present settlement and surrounded it by defensive walls to defend from outside attacks.
