SCOPELLO is a small town on the coast of Sicily. Like much of the rest of the Sicilian coast, it used to be a tuna fishery. Some of the fishing equipment, as well as the old cannery building, still remain. Today, tourists come from all over to see the historical architecture, the coastal cliffs, and to swim in the crystal clear waters.
