e-borghi travel 7, Islands and villages: The Tremiti Islands, the lonely heaven

They are the last border of the Adriatic Sea. Five little heavenly areas that were already known in the Roman time with the name of Diomede, the Greek Hero who, according to the legend, shaped the Gargano and the Sub-Appenine from the lava stones taken from the Pergamo’s rock then he created the islands with the remaining stones, he threw them into the deep blue sea and the five islands arose little by little. It’s an archipelago full of little inlets overlooking a breathless sea and it’s heaven for divers. The Tremiti islands are divided into the main San Domino and San Nicola, the two main islands that are both inhabited and the three smaller ones, Capraia, Pianosa and Cretaccio that are all uninhabited. The Archipelago was already inhabited in the ancient times and it is a popular tourist destination nowadays especially for the ones who seek the great exhibition of the sea and a tourism that is far from the big tourist waves. It’s heaven 22 kilometres form the Gargano’s coastline in the amazing Puglia.
