    “Since we did not live directly in Scopello, we can not rate the place. But there are two supermarkets at the turnoff to Castello, the one with many regional specialties. Highly recommended is the Ristorante and Pizzeria with very good kitchen, within walking distance about 1000 meters away.”

    “Scopello is a pretty, but very touristy little place. Visit once is nice. The restaurant La Terazza is recommended, beautiful sea view and good kitchen. An excursion
    in Zingaro Park is definitely recommended, swimwear with you. The bay "Marinella" there is a dream in turquoise. Attention dog owners: Dogs are not allowed on the park.”

    “In all honesty, I have to say that we have visited only a few restaurants and shops.
    Have not made a trip Why do you have to book another expensive holiday home with a private swimming pool to always go for a walk.”

    “The object is a starting point for many nice excursions. The beautiful bathing bays near Scopello or the beach of Castellamare del Golfo are also within easy reach. We felt it was convenient that a good baker was nearby. Something detrimental is the many rubbish on the roadside. This, however, was unfortunately a picture that accompanied us on the whole round trip in Sicily.”

This is how holiday rental owners described Scopello

Scopello is perhaps the more evocative and colorful place of the entire gulf of Castellammare.

It is a small village risen at the end of the 18th century around the "baglio", on a previous arab country house. I n the low-lying wonderful cove limited by the stacks and protected by ...

old towers, there is the "tonnara" (thunny-fishing structure), known since a long time ago (it is mentioned in documents of the year 1200); it has worked until few years ago, together with the"baglio", the buildings and the warehouses.
Upon the bay of Guidaloca is set a 16th century cylindrical tower.

The name of Scopello probably derives from the Greek "scopelos" (rock), from the Latin "scopellum" (rock) and from the arab "iscubul iactus" (high rock).
It has been inhabited since the prehistoric period (finds discovered in the caves of the inland document the human presence, starting from the palaeolithic period), the zone has been known since ancient times because of the abundance of tunnys, which were fished in its sea, so much that the Greeks called it "Cetaria", that means "earth of the tunnys". The Arabs founded there a country house, which was inhabited by fishermen and shepherds and, in 1235, Frederic II the Swabian, after having annexed it with all the feud to the city Mounte San Giuliano, granted the property to a group of settlers of Piacenza, who soon left because of the continuous piratic incursions.
In those centuries, in fact, the pirates who infested the low Mediterranean sea, used the bay of Scopello as a base for their raids: mooring the ships behind the stacks, they were practically invisible from the open sea.

The towers give to the landscape a mystery halo and a fascinating atmosphere, which mixes together nature and history. They go back to different ages and they were part of a system of defense and communication distributed along all the perimeter of the Sicily: communicating among themselves through the fire, by night and with the smoke during the day, all the island could be informed in very little time of every military new.
The oldest, probably built up by the Arabs to protect the "tonnara", is the one that rises on the stack that was once connected to the mainland, which could be approached through a bridge or probably a scale that was carved in the rock itself
The Doria tower, from the name of the Spanish nobleman who let it build on the terrace that faces the bay, goes back to the XVII century.
Another one, the Bennistra tower, is the one built in the XV century on the top of a mount in the south of the "baglio" and that dominates from its exceptional point of observation the entire gulf of Castellammare.

Il Baglio
Into the Town of Scopello there is the famous "Baglio" and there you can find some of typical shops, bar, a restaurant and a bank, infact all the main activities of Scopello are carry-on into this "Baglio".
In sping the town is full of turist attract from the joyful atmosphere that you find in the baglio. I n winter the town change in a paradise of peace and calm. In Scopello you find different bars (were you can eat the speciality food of the place as "Li Cassateddi", "La Pignolata" e "La Cassata Siciliana"), locali typical restaurants (where you can eat " Il Pani Cunsato"), a post office, a first-aid and a bank with bancomat.
