An overwhelming setting awaits you at Castellammare del Golfo (in English: „the castle at the sea“). Turn your eyes either upon the unlimited open sea or upon the charming hilly landscape of the hinterland framing the town.

It is with good reason that the view of the town is among the panoramic pictures we have chosen for our homepage.

Castellammare is not too far from our accommodations at Scopello and San Vito Le Capo, which makes it an ideal destination for a day trip. Stroll through the town and discover its numerous, beautiful corners and its rich history.  

Experiencing history at Castellammare del Golfo

The town was of great importance in ancient times as it was the trade center of the Elymians, the inhabitants of Segesta and Erice.

Later the town was ruled by the Arabs and called „Al Madarig“. It was the Arabs who built famous „Scalinata Rotary della Pace“, the staircase from the large piazza to the harbor, and the tuna factory of Castellammare.

The Arabs were driven off by the Normans, who built the impressive fortress, which has given the town its name.

Today, the fortress houses "La Memoria del Mediterraneo" (in English: „The memory of the Mediterranean Sea“), a museum which offers interesting insights into tuna fishing, into the underwater world and into local traditions.
