Mamma Caura

A magical and refined atmosphere.
Sunset from our terrace, according to a recent study of travelers’ favorite destinations,
turns out to be the fourth most beautiful in the world.

The name Mamma Caura, chosen to welcome our guests, is of very ancient origin: it is the term used by salt workers to indicate a gypsum-based sediment that accumulates every year on the bottom of the evaporating tanks -called caure- and is periodically taken out and removed from them. In a logic of circular economy ante litteram, which characterizes the activity, in the salt pans of the Trapani area, even the “mamma caura” is not eliminated, but reused as a natural and efficient material thanks to which we consolidate and waterproof the bottom and the banks of the ponds.

THE STRUCTURE

Carved out of a barracks from the 1930s, where salt duty was collected at the time, it was converted in the 1990s into an accommodation facility open to the public, which quickly became very successful. Entirely renovated in 2021, Mamma Caura is now an exclusive sunset bar within the Hector and Infersa Salt Flats. The only one where you can enjoy an unparalleled natural stage, thanks to its perfect sunset exposure. For those visiting Sicily for the first time, it is one of the most striking destinations to visit.

You can stay in the rooftop terrace on the ground floor in two areas (aperitif and bistro), from June to September you can sip aperitif with DJ Set by ManHaus Music at sunset.

The exclusivity is is completed with the Mamma Caura Rooftop on the second floor for those who like to admire the sunset in tranquility and from above, the Unique proposals in a unique place. The decor includes the artistic ceramics of Nicola Mirenda (Njco), elegant bamboo furniture, and of course the spectacle of the sunset.
