This place is the symbol of a fusion between nature and modern, tourism and wild area, representing a cult itinerary for thousands of tour­ists. Its promontory seems a huge cathedral, imposing and strict, and rises in front of the famous white Sardinian rocks, creating several strange shapes in one of the most evocative seaside places of the world, the so-called Strait of Bonifacio.
