Pantelleria

Dammuso

Hundreds of thousands of years ago a large explosion in the heart of the Mediterranean made the summit of a volcanic crater emerge: Pantelleria, the black pearl of the Mediterranean. In spite of its insular nature, Pantelleria reveals almost everywhere its character as an island of farmers: here the famous Zibibbo grape is cultivated from which raisins and the Passito and Moscato wines are produced, while the caper is considered to be of excellent quality. In the terraced districts, with names of Arab origins, the typical farmers houses, the dammusi, built with the dark lava stone and covered with an extremely white domed roof can be seen dotted around. Warm waters and mud baths represent real natural centres of wellbeing. The island presents numerous traces of settlements, including the famous Neolithic site of Mursia with the tombs of the Sesi. The construction of the austere Pantelleria Castle is attributed to the Normans.
