Tremiti Islands: the Islands of Capraia and Cretaccio

THE ISLAND OF CAPRAIA

The second biggest island of the archipelago, Capraia owes its name to itsĀ abundance of capers.

It is uninhabited, very rocky, with a great geological basin: Cala dei Turchi.

Another of its beauties, and a striking feature of the archipelago, is the Architiello: a natural arch formed by rocks 6 metres high.

THE ISLAND OF CRETACCIO

This is the smallest island of the archipelago, and it is divided into two rocky stretches the shape of which resembles a sickle.

Cretaccio too is uninhabited; it is made up of crumbly jagged rocks.
