“Historical value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

A little bit of Sicilian history of when tuna was plentiful and is now being slowly restored. Near the bach and the Marzamemi Yacht Club. Lots of little bars and the magical little church in the piazza.

“View of a fishing activity past by.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

The Tonnara is a complex where the activity of fishing, processing the fish and selling it took place. Marsamemi is a hamlet built around the Tonnara. The main attraction is the square where you will find the two churches and the old fishermen's houses, some of which are transformed to bar and restaurants.

Navigating into the intertwined streets, you soon come to the coast. You see a panorama of the old port.
