The Aegadian Islands (Italian: Isole Egadi) are a group of small mountainous islands
in the Mediterranean Sea off the northwest coast of Sicily, Italy, near the cities of Trapani
and Marsala, with a total area of 37.45 square kilometres (14.46 sqmi).
Favignana (Aegusa), the largest, lies 16 km. south west of Trapani;
Levanzo (Phorbantia) 13 km. west;
while Marettimo, the ancientIera Nesos, 24 km. west of Trapani, is now reckoned as a part of the group.
There are also two minor islands, Formica and Maraone, lying between Levanzo and Sicily.
For administrative purposes the archipelago constitutes the comune of Favignana in the Province of Trapani.
The overall population in 2000 was estimated at about 3,000.
Winter frost is unknown and rainfall is low.
The main occupation of the islanders is fishing, and the largest tuna fishery in Sicily is here.
There is evidence of Neolithicand even Paleolithic paintings in caves on Levanzo, and to a lesser extent on Favignana.
The islands were the scene of the Battle of the Aegates Islands of 241 BC,
in which the Carthaginian fleet was defeated by the Roman fleet led by C. Lutatius Catulus;
the engagement ended the First Punic War.
After the end of Western Roman power in the first millennium AD, the islands,
to the extent that they were governed at all, were part of territories of Goths,
Vandals, Saracens, before the Normans fortified Favignana in 1081.
The islands belonged to the Pallavicini-Rusconi family of Genoa until 1874,
when they were bought by the Florio family of Palermo.
Favignana island is famous for its caves of calcarenite rock (locally known as "tufo")
and the ancient fishing technique of tonnara, with the trapping and mattanza (massacre) of bluefin tuna.
Favignana is one of the few places in Italy where this is still done.
Because the island consists mainly of calcareous rocks, there are few beaches on the island;
however, it is a popular site for scuba diving, snorkeling, and for day trips from nearby Trapani.
