Tuna fishery of Secco in San Vito Lo Capo

Tuna fishery of Secco

Tonnara del Secco

Three kilometers far from the center of San Vito Lo Capo there is an old Tuna Trap (tonnara), a very interesting place to be visited, also because of the history of these places.
The fishing nets are not used since 1969 anymore, but the place is still full of charm.
Along the properties of the tuna trap, aristocratic buildings and the ancient remains of fish processing can still be seen , which date back to the fourth century before Christ.
Here they worked the fish that were captured in the facing sea.

This location was chosen for several films and dramas including the famous "Cefalonia".
Sometimes it’s possible to see even some dolphins . Near this Tonnara there is the other one, Tonnara of Scopello, famous for his Faraglioni (sea stacks).
This place is suitable for those who love peace and want to do snorkeling.
