Mondello (in Sicilian Munneddu) is a hamlet and tourist resort of Palermo, enclosed by Monte Pellegrino and Monte Gallo. Detached from the city by the Parco della Favorita, it can be reached by the many tree-lined royal avenues or by secondary connections.
The area is renowned for its beach, which is one of the most sought-after in Sicily, its many Art Nouveau villas, known as the best expression of Art Nouveau in Italy, and its sites of historical interest.
It is home to the World Festival on the Beach. In 1975, the Mondello Prize, a literary festival now organised by the Fondazione Sicilia together with the International Book Fair of Turin, was born here.
