It is a lively center of the Tyrrhenian coast overlooking the innermost part of the homonymous gulf and stretches out over the sea with Marina di Patti, where the remains of a Roman Villa have recently been found. Founded in 1094 by Count Roger I, elevated to the status of a bishopric by King Roger II in 1131, nominated as a royal city by Frederick III of Aragon in 1312, Patti received the title of “magnanimous” from Charles V, for having paid a generous tribute to crown. The historic core of the city still partly retains the medieval fabric of narrow streets, surmounted by arches, grouped around the Cathedral. The Cathedral, whose current structure dates back to the eighteenth century, has a beautiful Norman portal reassembled on the main facade.
Imagine yourself in an enchanted land: around you the blue of the Tyrrhenian Sea extends as far as the eye can see and the sky merges with the sea … Mongiove is located in an inlet surrounded by green hills that give it a pleasant climate and ventilated. The seaside resort is characterized by the presence of wide sandy beaches, with medium depth sea beds that facilitate a particularly flourishing fishing activity, by trolling and from the ground.
