San Domino Island...


Curiosity ...
It is the largest island of the Tremiti archipelago (208 hectares) and is entirely covered by a dense pine forest of Aleppo and times by a fragrant and luxuriant Mediterranean scrub (rosemary, myrtle, and olive).
The jagged nature of its coasts gives life to a series of inlets, coves, arches, caves of unparalleled beauty.
On steep coasts and on haystacks, species of birds of prey such as the peregrine falcon and the hawk of the queens find refuge, swifts, gulls and two birds present only here, the berta major and the berta minor (diomedee). The shepherds are completely devoted to flying and touch the ground only to nest. Their verse, Greek hero, at his death wanted to bury him in Tremiti (Saint Nicholas) and, suffering from grief the friend who brought so much that he induced the goddess to turn them into birds. Thus, every night without moon, the missing friend weeps.
Legend aside, the Tremiti is home to one of the Mediterranean's most important nesting colonies.
