Scopello, changes

This tiny fishing hamlet located in the territory of Castellammare del Golfo has always been famous for it's beauty, splendid views of the sea, it's sea boulders that rival those of Capri and it's tonnara or tuna fishery. It was always a tourist stop but these images show how much it has changed. The top image is from 1972 while the other two are from last spring. In the old days the place was more real now it's very touristy and it  has lost much of it's soul. It still has great vistas and the restaurants are superb so it's not a total loss.
