Weddings in Sicily at Tonnara di Scopello

Panoramic view of Tonnara di Scopello  

Venue description

La Tonnara di Scopello was a tuna fishery in operation from the 13th century until its closure in 1984. It is located in Sicily’s northwest corner, in a small bay not far from the town Castellammare del Golfo. This is one of Sicily’s most dramatic, striking and varied stretches of coastline.

La Tonnara is a little harmonious borgo, an impressive sight that appeared in several movies and TV programs in recent years. Because of its position seafront you can admire the fluorescent blue waters and the dramatic rock formations capped by a medieval tower, definitely worth a visit.
