Its history begins in 1616, when a watchtower was built right at the entrance of the port against piracy existing in the Mediterranean. Portopetro was a port with a lot of maritime traffic since its location allowed ships to shelter from bad weather. In addition, the waters of the area were very exclusive since it was home to a great variety of marine fauna, which is why it was highly demanded by fishermen, thus it became the main activity during that time and continued in force until the mid-1960s. Part essential to the history and development of Portopetro is its relationship with smuggling, thousands of stories flood the town, from tobacco, to sugar or alcohol, Portopetro was key due to its strategic location near the African continent.
