THE ROAD UNDER THE SEA

Motya lays on St. Pantaleus’ island at the centre of a lagoon sea branch closed on the east side by the western coast of Sicily and on the west side by Isola Lunga (Long Island).
Motya was fortified by a wall around it, and was connected to the mainland by a road which, starting from Porta Nord (Northern Gate) reached Birgi.  This road, 1.7-kilometer long and large enough to host two flanking carts, was in use until the beginning of the 70’s. Now it is possible to spot it under the sea.

To have seen Italy without having seen Sicily is not to have seen Italy at all, for Sicily is the clue to everything.
