I have to be honest, Portopalo di Capo Passero, has been my favourite town of Sicily. Yes, I know, that is quite impressive but it is so true. I just loved this place and want to share 10 top curiosities about this small town which are certainly helpful to best handle your stay.

  1. Portopalo di Capo Passero is an old fishing village located at the southernmost point of Sicily, so it is a last city of Italy! To be fair, it is further south than Tunis as well. Try to imagine the weather here. It is always pleasant.
  2. It is an ideal place to stay during the vacation as it is close to the main cities like Noto, Marzamemi or Ragusa but still quite far from the chaotic tourism.
  3. Portopalo di Capo Passero has very charming beaches; here you can find both sandy and rocky ones. 
  4. It’s believed that this town is a meeting point between the Mediterranean Sea and the Ionian Sea. It sounds something very strange but I saw the waves going zig-zag without any destination.
  5. Portopalo di Capo Passero owns two Islands: Isola di Capo Passero and Isola delle Correnti.
  6. People in Portopalo have the custom of hanging or pasting the epigraphs at the entrance door so that to let you know the family members died in their house.
  7. The Ape car granita seller of Portopalo is the best one in the city. Find him and try his Granita.
  8. Pizzeria Pastieri in Via Dante 40 ( phone: 320-9664076 / 320- 3475280) delivers not only pizzas but also other food and sweet item which are delicious. It is owned by an old couple that doesn’t speak English.
  9. Colapesce Restaurant in the city centre was the best one we have tried in town Here we have eaten the most delicious Pepata di Cozze ever. They also make caponata without tomato. 
  10. Portopalo di Capo Passero is a second biggest industry of fishing vessels in Sicily.
