The visit was stunningly interesting, especially thanks to Francesca "la figlia dell'operaio" who perfectly explained us the history of this building and people who used to manage it and live in it. It's awesome how locals are emotionally attached to the history of this building.

A very special visit to this fantastic museum! We loved it! A special place to discover the history of the tuna fishing industry was not that long ago. The guides are very knowledgable. A real must to understand the history of Favignana.

I spent a couple of days in the restored, old tuna factory in Favignana. Beautiful rooms, spectacular history, surroundings, sights and stories. Modern function in an ancient setting.
