Mondello is a small town located in a charming bay between Mount Gallo and Mount Pellegrino. It represents one of the most elegant and refined bathing locations in Western Sicily. At one time, many years ago, there was an ancient fishing village here; the fishermen lived thanks to the tuna-fishing activity which, today, no longer exists. At the beginning of the 1900's, a "garden-city" was created on land reclaimed specifically for this purpose. It was created especially for the holidaymakers of the elite, and this determined the character and the destiny of the location.
Mondello has, therefore, become a much frequented location during the summer, thanks also to the availability of sporting activities: windsurfing, sailing and canoeing. There are also remarkable natural beauties: the ocean with its marvellous colours, its seabed rich with splendid vegetation and submarine caverns and, finally, the beautiful rocks. Close to Mondello it is also possible to visit the second Addaura cave, a cavern where graffiti dating back to the Palaeolithic age were found.
At Palermo - Mondello, there is tourist accommodation available in hotels, farm holiday, farmhouse, residence self-catering accommodation, b&b, rooms for rent, holiday homes, camp sites and tourist villages.
