It is built around a well protected harbour.

In modern history, between 1880 and 1920, Panormo experienced major growth of commerce with shops, storehouses and workshops.

Agricultural products from the inland were aggregated in the village and subsequently they were transported to ports of the Mediterranean Sea (Marseilles, south Italy) and the Black Sea (Odessa).

Nowadays Panormo is a particular charming settlement with neoclassical buildings, polite people and elaborated tourism development.

The harbour of Panormo is pretty large and can accommodate sailing ships and yachts. Fishing boats supply the local taverns with fresh fish every day.

The compatibility of tourism development, modern infrastructure and finesse, worthy of the fame and history of the village, can be discovered by the visitors in the quaint lanes, restored mansions, squares and clean beaches.
