During the course of centuries, the "Cape" has been for priests the sacred
place used to look into the future, for poets and writers their inspiring
town, for example Giuseppe Berto (author of "Il Male Oscuro") decided to
move here for this particular reason, and for all the ancient
civilisations the place where to leave their artistic, cultural and

thanks to its particularly attractive coastline with crystal-clear waters
and rocky reefs.

monotony of the granite rocks with its variation of colours.
