Provincia: TP - Area: Pantelleria

The island of Pantelleria, immersed in the Mediterranean Sea, suspended between Africa and Europe, is known as the Black Pearl of the Mediterranean.
Its territory is of volcanic origin: in 1891 the last eruption took place in the submerged part of the island and today there are still many phenomena of secondary volcanism.
Pantelleria is characterized by the singularity of its landscape: natural elements such as lava flows in blocks, splendid coves and suggestive stacks mix with characteristic man-made artifacts such as stone walls dry, the Pantelleria gardens, and the dammusi.
