Beautiful fortified medieval village perched on a hilltop, Capoliveri overlooks the sea and offers the most beautiful views of the southern coast of the island.
The village lies in a web of alleys with arches, underpasses and stairs, around the elegant main square, with great restaurants, bars and boutiques.
Traditionally known as one of the most touristy towns of the island, Capoliveri offers visitors various attractions of the historical/artistic kind. Among these is the Church of
Santa Maria Assunta in Romanesque style, the Church of San Michele, which in 1376 was home to Pope Gregory XI, and the Sanctuary of the
Madonna delle Grazie, the old refuge of the monks during the French Revolution.
In the area surrounding the Old Town rises the Calamita Mount, home of the famous mines that were once rich in minerals, still accessible to the public for guided tours.
Going towards the sea, the coast of Capoliveri has beaches, coves and cliffs for all tastes, including the famous beaches of Laconella, Felciaio and Zuccale.
Along the beautiful scenic route over the Gulf of Stella, you can admire the wild and beautiful landscapes that lead from the Old Town up to the famous Innamorata Bay,
passing through the small coastal towns of Naregno, Pareti and Morcone.
One of the favourite tourist attractions is Lacona, the largest borough of Capoliveri, also of particular importance to the presence of the last dune area between
the small Italian islands, which became for this Protected Area of the Tuscan Archipelago.
