San vito lo capo

San Vito Lo Capo is a charming town in Sicily, Italy. It is located on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, and it is easily accessible by car or bus.

The town

San Vito Lo Capo is a small town with less than 20,000 residents who live there year-round. The local economy is mostly focused on agriculture and tourism. The area around San Vito Lo Capo has been inhabited since ancient times. It wasn’t until around 1000 CE that it became a permanent settlement.

The town has an interesting history: it was once known as “San Vito della Valle”, but later changed its name after an earthquake destroyed much of it in 1693. The new name is derived from the Latin word “vita” meaning “life”.

The town lies along the northern cliffs of Capo San Vito, which forms part of the western side of the Gulf of Castellammare, between Cape Passero and Capo Zafferano. It is one of the major tourist destinations on the island. It is known for its natural beauty, sandy beaches and clear sea water.
