Isola dei Cavoli Trail

  • Trail Conditions: On foot

    Isola dei Cavoli is situated in the south-east of Capo Carbonara. After landing in a small bay, we will take the uphill trail leading to the lighthouse built by the people of Piedmont in the second half of the 19th century on a pre-existing 16th century Spanish tower. Along the route, it will be possible to observe interesting endemic species, like Brassica insularis, Limonium retirameum, the dead horse arum lily (Helicoderus muscivorus), and Ferula Arrigoni. The area is also characterized by several wildlife species like the Audouin's Gull (Larus adonii), the European shag (Phalacrocorax aristotelis), the Manx Shearwater (Puffinus puffinus), and the Peregrine (Falco peregrinus). On the seabed of the island, at about 10 meters of depth, you will find the statue of Madonna del Naufrago (Madonna of the Castaway). Every year, on the third Sunday of July, a charming ceremony is celebrated here.
