Aeolian Islands are the picture-perfect world heritage site!

The Aeolian Islands are a UNESCO world heritage site due to their outstanding record of ongoing volcanic activity. Lipari, Vulcano, Salina, Alicudi, Filicudi, Panarea and Stromboli are the seven “sisters” that rise from the Tyrrhenian Sea, about forty kilometres from the north-eastern coast of Sicily and a symbol of uncontaminated nature.

The ancient name of Salina, “Didyme” is from the Greek “twins”, referring to Salina’s two mountains, it’s these extinct volcanos that give the island its unique profile. The island is known mainly for the production of Malvasia and capperi di Salina; a Slow Food presidium, its abundant vegetation is the richest among these islands, attracting many bird species to Salina.

And here is where Capofaro was born. A spectacular estate found on the island of Salina, designed for friends, guests and travellers of taste, providing the best in Mediterranean hospitality. Capofaro is the truest expression of Salina, a locanda surrounded by rows of vines reaching the sea, producing Malvasia, the typical wine of the island.
