Mondello is a most renowned seaside resort lying few kilometres from Palermo. It extends around the small bay enclosed by mounts Gallo and Pellegrino.
The town began life as a village of fishermen most engaged in the local tuna fishery. A 1400’s round tower is all that remains of this old building that was working as far as the early-1900s. Most of his rooms were converted into business premises.
Mondello’s most marshy surrounding areas were reclaimed at the beginning of the 20th century.
Mondello shore is most attractive, characterized by crystal-like waters and uncontaminated sea-floors with richest underwater vegetation and caves.
