Campobello di Mazara (Trapani Province) is 67 km from Trapani, alt. 110 m, in the lower valley of the River Modione, near its mouth, area 65.8 sq km, pop. over 12,600, post-code 91021, tel. 0924. Agricultural economy: wines.

The town was founded in 1623 by Giuseppe di Napoli, who in 1630 was given a dukedom.

Of interest is the Baronial Palace near the public gardens, a little away from the modern town center, which is Piazza Garibaldi.

Near the town are the Rocche di Cusa, ancient quarries from which the Selinuntines extracted stone for the contruction of the largest temple in their city.
