Nature has been very generous to this 4 square miles island, concentrating on it all the plants and animals which characterise the Mediterranean area, dispensing it a warm climate, protecting it with marvellous sheer cliffs surrounded by a rich and lively sea.

This island, with a human presence dating back to more than 5000 years ago and populated by animals since the Pleistocene, offers breathtaking panoramas, an uncontaminated nature, a pit of black marble with golden streaks (called portoro), two recently renewed forts, finds of the WWII and, most importantly, an unparalleled privacy and the chance to live in direct contact with nature and carry out all nature-related activities.

Since 1997 the island has been included in the UNESCO World Heritage Listtogether with the Tino, Tinetto, Porto Venere and the Cinque Terre. .
