Portopalo di Capo Passero

Overview

The sea has always been the absolute protagonist and essence of the soul of Portopalo di Capo Passero, the southernmost Sicilian village on the island. Its territory is made up of coastline and waves and includes two islands: the Island of Capo Passero, a few dozen metres from the mainland, and the Island of Correnti, a few kilometres away. Since the beginning of time, life here has been governed by the rhythm imposed by the winds, currents and tides. Bathed by both the Ionian and the Mediterranean, the village has a strong seafaring essence, which is told in the fishing, once the only economic resource along with agriculture, in the traditions, in the old fishermen's houses that surround the small port. Here everything is intertwined with the sea and the journey has the enchanting scent of saltiness.
