Photographer's Note

This photo showing the Caprara Isalnd was taken from the Isle of San Nicola also belonging to the Tremiti Islands. Besides being the smallest (0.15 sq.miles) and the only uninhabited Tremiti Island, Caprara is also the furthest from theItalian coast. Once it was called "Capperaia" due to the abundance of caper plants that still grow there. This flat-looking island has only one uneven point: the 53-metre-high Monte Grosso. Once Caprara was fertile and green (its lands were once cultivated by monks who lived there), but today it is covered by a scarce vegetation mainly consisting of lentiscus. It is connected to the main Tremiti Island by a local boat service. Its only buildings are the Casa dei Coatti (first used as an isolation site for prisoners and later as a farm) and the Faro della Marina (lighthouse).
