The Greek name of the island was Phorbantia (Φορβαντία), probably due to the abundant amount of grass (φορβή) on the island. The village is composed of a small group of houses with a small marina, which is about 15 km from Trapani. The island is not practicable from cars because of the small roads, some of which are not paved.
On the coast there are some caves, the most famous of which is the Grotta del Genovese, one of the most important archaeological sites in Italy, with its rock carvings and paintings dating back to the Upper Paleolithic (9680 BC).
In addition, in the stretch of water in front of Cala Minnola, on the eastern side of the island of Levanzo, there is one of the most important underwater archaeological sites in Sicily: there are the wreckage of a Roman ship and the remains of the cargo of amphorae and fragments of crockery lying at a depth of about 27 meters. Last but not least, Cala Fridda, which takes its name from the presence of some underwater freshwater streams, will leave you open-mouthed by the limpidity of its waters and the variety of species marine.
The small port of the island leaves you literally ecstatic, it seems as if time has stopped dozens of years ago, the small boats of fishermen and the fishing nets lying on the pier are the backdrop to a succession of white houses with celestial shutters in the typical Mediterranean style.
Fishing, tourism and agriculture are the economic voices of the island.
