Capri, not just Faraglioni

Capri is internationally renowned for three majestic rocks rising from the island’s south-eastern waters: the Faraglioni rocks.

Hotel Senaria

However, not everyone knows that a further faraglione exists. It is called ‘Scoglio del Monacone‘. A possible English translation might be the Monk’s rock. But this is just a conjecture, as the name’s origins is uncertain.

Some believe that the islet is named after the monk seal that is though as inhabiting the norther coast of the island until the beginning of the XX century. Some believe that it was the tomb where the emperor Augustus’ architect, Masgaba, was buried.

Some others have that the islet was natural basin to salt fishes, or a site for rabbit breeding.

What is instead certain are the geological origins of this strangely beautiful rock. It is, in fact, a piece of Sorrento Peninsula, which was submerged by the sea thousands and thousands years ago.

The ‘Scoglio del Monacone’ is also home, along with the third faraglione from the land, to the famous, very rare and almost impossible to find anywhere else in the world, blue lizard.

This is just one of the many wonders to visit taking a boat tour around the island on the traditional ‘gozzo‘. Ask our hotel staff about how to enjoy such a trip!!!

Capri, a far from the crowd place for the perfect Mediterranean holiday

Capri, a far from the crowd place to live the relaxing experience of a Mediterranean holiday.  Spring certainly is the best season of the year to enjoy such an experience.

This is true for a number of reasons. Let us assume that you would love to stroll down one of the island’s many fancy, typical streets, or sit at the table in famous ‘Piazzetta’. AprilMay and early June, when the island’s nature gives its best, are the best time for that.

The scent of blossoming flowers and blooming Mediterranean Scrubland, also know as ‘Macchia Mediterranea‘, is, in fact, something quite unique.

Let us also say that you like hiking. Though it is a small island, Capri offers dozens of hidden pathways and trails leading to the most stunning views. A pleasant experience thanks to Spring’s mild temperatures.

Colours. Capri in Summer, with its bright, vibrant and joyful colours is quite something. But, if you’re looking for nuances, infinite shades and gradients of warm colours, sunset in May is what you most surely want.

As the sun goes down, the sky get painted with a spectacle of colours words cannot describe.

 

Capri

Naples’ seafront. A must-to-go place

This is Capri island from ‘Lungomare di Chiaia‘, Naples’ beautiful waterfront, stretching from majestic ‘Castel Nuovo’, where the very peculiar ‘Borgo dei Marinari’ lies, a sort of fishermen citadel, in the east, to wonderful ‘Mergellina’ area in the west.

Naples’ seaside has been recently revamped and turned into a pedestrian area. An array of restaurants, bars and bistrot serving delicious local food.

Capri

Just imagine strolling down the city’s seafront on a wonderful Saturday afternoon savouring an artisanal ice-cream, a fresh breeze coming from the sea, a breathtaking view, the air filled with the delicate smell of Neapolitan coffee.

It takes nothing to get to Naples from Capri. Just 45 minutes by fast ferry and 1:30 h by slow ferry.

A city of thousand years history, founded in 9-8th century BC as one of the most important Magna Grecia’s cities. The traces of such an important Greek past are still largely visible today, as the town’s historic centre known as ‘Centro Antico’ maintains the same urban structure and layout as nearly 3000 years ago.

The area has been listed as one of UNESCO’s intangible sites. And it is definitely worth visiting it!!!

Capri’s Blue Grotto. A fascinating and mysterious story.

The Blue Grotto. One of the most renowned in the world. Everyone talks about it. Still, a mysterious place that inspired fascinating stories.

Being located on the north-western side of the island is not visible from the outside visible. During high tides, the only way to enter through is small mouth cave is swimming.

So, how to enter it in bright, sunny days?

Board a tiny, traditional rowboat. Lie down. For it is not possible to enter it staying seated, least of all standing. The boatman grabs a chain hooked into the rock and pulls. In less than one second you find yourself into the dark.

It takes a couples of seconds for the outline of the cave emerge. Then, the magic. The cave’s areblue/emerald-colored, due to very particular lighting conditions.Light, in fact, comes from two sources. One is the tiny mouth at the waterline. The other is an underwater hole ten times larger than the former. As you dive in, your skin turns blue.

Capri

 

Blue grotto is thought to be Emperor Tiberius’ personal swimming hole and temple. Geometry of the cave is also quite complex and mysterious.

Three connecting passageways at the back of the main hall lead to the ‘Room of Names’, named after the graffiti visitors left over the centuries. Two more passageways lead deeper into the internal cliffs of the island, and are said to be leading straight to the Emperor’s villa. Which one is that remains unknown.

Capri

It can be either the most renowned villa on the top of the mount on the opposite side of the island – Villa Jovis; or the villa located on the road leading to the cave in Anacapri – Villa Damecuta; or another villa on the northern side of the island, in the area known as ‘Palazzo a Mare’ – quite nothing remaining of it. Or it can be the three of them. No one really knows.

 

The whole story is surrounded by mystery. And that’s fine. Maybe it’s mystery that makes this story fascinating.
