In this article you will find out what to see in Pozzallo. The town, like Milazzo, is primarily known for its port and connections to the island of Malta. In summer, however, it is a popular tourist destination because of the sea and good food.
The beach here is wide and sandy, the promenade is well maintained, and a beautiful Aragonese tower overlooks the sea. Let’s go now to find out what to see and where to eat in Pozzallo.
1. Torre Cabrera
The Tower was built in the 15th century by the Aragonese, to defend themselves from attacks by pirates and enemies in general. It takes its name from Count Cabrera, who asked the king for permission to have it built. Prisoners were also held here, and many were executed by drowning, chained on the rocks, waitingafter high tide.
The tower was restored in 2017 and was finally made accessible for free to the public. Also very beautiful is the wooden pier above the sea, which goes around the tower, which allows you to observe it at its best.
2. Town hall and waterfront
Also worth visiting is the nearby Giorgio la Pira Municipal Palace (1923), graced by a small garden with a large ficus tree, and the nearby Piazza delle Rimembranze. But the real highlight of Pozzallo is the Pietre nere promenade. It is very well kept, green, wide and away from traffic. Here, especially in the evening, you can relax, eat a nice ice cream and enjoy the sea air.
3. The Pietre Nere beach
Pozzallo’s sandy beach is really very large, and in some sections there are even palm trees growing there. Here you will find many beaches but also free areas where you can spend a day of full relaxation.
What and where to eat
After having seen what to see in Pozzallo, let’s think about food. The most striking place to have lunch or dinner in Pozzallo is definitely in the beautiful little square in front of Torre Cabrera. You can eat excellent pizza at the “I Cabrera” restaurant, while for first or second courses you can go to the “Sabbenerica” restaurant. Finally, at the restaurant “A calata o Ponti” you can book a table directly on the beach.
