  • Description

    The isle of Pantelleria is the southernmost point of the Italian territory. Traces of human habitation are made to date back to the 'quaternary' period by the stone constructions used by the "Homo Brutus". The island was later a Phoenician colony then later it came under Carthage and later still under Moorish dominations.

    The volcanic origin of the island tends to give it an appearance which is beautiful and savage at the same time. Lately the island has been rediscovered by both 'locals' (Italians) and Foreign tourists who frequent it for undersea fishing and exploration.

    Pantelleria is also well known for its wine and raisins which still are exported all over the world.
