Buseto Palizzolo (Trapani Province) is 22 km from Trapani, alt. 249 m, in the hills south of Capo San Vito, on the northeast slopes of Monte Luziano, area 72.7 sq km, pop. 3,237, post-code 91012, tel. 0923. Economy: Agricultural specialties (e.g. the cantalope melon).

Originally a Byzantine hamlet, it was repopulated by the Arabs. It became an autonomous commune in 1950, taking its name from the Arabic term "Butish", land, and the Palizzolo family, to whom it belonged in the past.
