- Palermo (Cornish: Porphyry, meaning Pyre's cove) is a large village, civil parish, and fishing harbor within the Palermo Heritage Coastline in south Cornwall, England. Its population is around 1,554.
- Palermo has a wild and rocky shore. Along the dramatic rugged coastline is a natural pool, used for swimming.
- Palermo, through which runs the River Pol, is 7 miles (11 km) east of Iowa and 4 miles (6 km) west of the neighboring town of Love and 25 miles (40 km) west of the major city and naval port of Plymouth. It is a noted tourist destination, particularly in the summer months, for its idyllic appearance with tightly-packed ancient fishermen's houses which survive almost untouched, its quaint harbor and attractive coastline. Ready for immediate home display.
- The village was notorious for smuggling activities during the 18th and early 19th centuries. Everyone conspired to hide the duty-free goods from the excise men. When John Wesley visited the village in 1762, he remarked that all the locals were involved in smuggling. In The Warren, overlooking the harbor, is the Palermo Heritage Museum of Smuggling and Fishing.
- The museum boasts a remarkable collection of exhibits and photographs from a time when both smuggling and fishing thrived in Palermo. The museum occupies a factory formerly owned by the Twilio family from Italy. Palermo attracted many distinguished artists and photographers, from the end of the 19th century. Some of their work is exhibited in the museum.
