  • The trap should be restored. It is still to be seen, as well as the old fishing village which is near. has its own particular charm.

  • One of the most scenic areas of the country even if the arc of tuna sold and is no longer there, but the area is very accurate, small nice local and free beach and spotless

  • As announced in the title, only a treatise on industrial archaeology could (maybe) make sense of this ruin devastated, dirty and totally abandoned to the elements. Whereas in Avola, in fact, a real Boardwalk does not exist, the restoration might be a good place to start to give some life to this area where, to date, can only be found good restaurants but no chance to take a walk or have a drink and relax on the sea.

  • "Old" is the old tuna of Avola, which is the main building located inside the fishing village avolese. It was built in 1633 at the Centre of the neighbouring village marittmo where the landing being flanked by a fishermen's boats could land safely. It was one of the largest and most important "traps" of southeastern Sicily, placed at the center of the southern coast of Sicily, Italy washed by Ionian Sea, where there were also traps placed at areas of Santa Panagia (Syracuse), Vendicari (Known), Marzamemi (Pachino) and Portopalo di Capo Passero (to mention only the main ones or at least still exist). This is one of the most important monuments in the city of Avola even considered as one of its main "places" with hexagonal historic citizen (with its squares, churches and palaces) and Cava Grande del Cassibile River. Unfortunately today it is abandoned and no longer as in the picture, as in case of maintenance the arch collapsed and only rubble.

  • Tonnara 60 years, disused placed in a wonderful Bay. I've been to this place in the month of Sept 2015, suitable for for bathrooms, fine sandy beach and Sandy seabed always sloping slightly. Ideal for children. Within a few metres c has everything you may need, two restaurants a bar two fishmongers with great fish we are parked with the camper in a square on the pier, definitely nn will be allowed in the summer but now is wonderful.

  • I know the place for decades and see that we're getting old together; I'm defending me, he looks like a mess. Evidently, the hands that have been given are not the best. The arc of the sea was standing until two years ago. It is an exhibit of industrial architecture that should be recovered soon and valued, provided that the ' recovery ' does not concern the bank account of someone.

  • Very impressive. You should, perhaps, be restored or at least put into F.A.I. style order, however is a very impressive place even in his abandonment. May count a securing even leaving some weeds.

  • Evocative place but I believe should be emphasized more by the local administration.
