Much of the reserve consists of salt pans of private property, which is still practiced in the extraction of salt according to traditional techniques in use for centuries. Significant impact on the landscape of the presence of numerous windmills used to pump water between the basins. In addition, the site is characterized by the fact of being one of the most important coastal wetlands of western Sicily that is home to numerous species of migratory birds rpotetti by the WWF. In his Sotira, the area underwent several domination including those Norman, Roman, Angevin and Aragonese. But it was, above all, under the dominion of the Spanish crown that its manufacturing activity peaked transforming the port of Trapani in the most important European center for the marketing of salt.
