Tonnara of San Giuliano and Punta Tipa beach

Tonnara of San Giuliano (the Tuna Trap of St. Julian) and Punta Tipa beach

The tuna trap of “San Giuliano Palazzo”, closed in 1961, was probably the first tuna trap in Western Sicily. Today crumbling, it saw its first nucleus in the construction of a watchtower and a huge quadrangular wall to defend itself against the frequent pirates attacks.

Here is situated a small beach which, especially in August, is full of bathers attracted by its always clean waters.
