Port "Marina Piccola" Crane Point

The toponymy of the bay and the cape of St. Elias are associated with a legend. God wanted to give a gift to the Angels a land in which to live as long as the seek.
After a long search, found in Sardinia, the only place in which prevailed not hatred and malice, and the inhabitants lived peacefully pastoralists and agriculture.
God kept his promise and the Angels settled there.
This fact provoked the envy of Lucifer, who tried to instigate a fight between the Angels to chase them away from this earth.
The Angels refused and began a battle in the Gulf unleashing huge waves did fling that Lucifer from his steed.
  The Archangel Gabriel emerged triumphant from the Gulf with a sword in his hand while furiously hurled Lucifer the saddle of his horse on the hill of St. Elias.
  Today we see the picturesque ridge called the Devil's Saddle precisely.
