The Masters of the sea


As soon as you pass the Faraglioni you come across this splendid solitary island, whose name seems to derive from the fact that it was a refuge for monk seals, once part of the Capri fauna.

On its summit, the remains of ancient basins were found, which some have recognized as the old tomb construction of Masgaba, architect of Emperor Augustus,

while other sources have described them as basins used in the past for the drying of fish or for breeding hares or hiding places for quail hunters.

Now, among the faunal species on the rock, beyond the nests of the seagulls, there is, even if it is rare, the famous Blue Lizard also present on the Faraglione di Fuori known under the name of Scopolo.
