The Village of Punta Milazzese in Panarea is a prehistoric village dating back to the Bronze Age, 14th century BC. located on the promontory of Capo Milazzese. It is located in an area that is difficult to reach from the sea due to the presence of steep rocky walls and has a single narrow access defended by a square tower. The village, in its central structure, is well preserved: the settlement consisted of twenty-three huts, of which the oval-shaped foundations remain, incorporated into a rectangular enclosure. Among the huts in the village, one stands out for being rectangular and with a door in the center of the south side. These differences have led to the hypothesis of its function as a sanctuary or public building, a hypothesis supported by the fact that, inside, the most beautiful Mycenaean ceramic vases of the Aeolian Islands were found.
The finds from the excavations are exhibited in Aeolian Archaeological Museum of Lipari .
The site can be reached from Cala degli Zimmari, continuing along a path with steps that leads to the promontory of Capo Milazzese.
