The name Pozzallo probably derives from an old well in the area, called Puzzaddu in Sicilian dialect. From the end of the 14th century it belonged to the Count of Modica Bernardo Cabrera, who built the wonderful tower (named after him) to defend the town from the frequent incursions of the pirates.

Santa Maria della Pietà

The village started developing in the 19th century next to the tower, and became municipality in 1829. On June 3, 1860 some Garibaldian volunteers, the so-called "Lighthouse hunters", landed here to meet the Thousand.

For its beach the town is considered a holiday resort, and  has also very interesting monuments, such as palace Musso in art-nuveau style (beginning of the 20th century) and the Tower (14th century).

Amongst the famous personalities we mention the politician and jurist Giorgio La Pira, who was Florence's mayor for a long time and was received by Stalin in Moscow in 1951, as well as the world-wide renown sculptor Enzo Assenza.
