... the smallest island in the Bay of Naples, inhabited by a small community of fishermen and farmers. As can be seen in the fotos, the local architecture is a haphazard cascade of cube-shaped pastel-colored houses held together by stairways, terraces, balconies, arches and courtyards that keeps families in close contact.

We look forward to seeing you all this Sunday at Church.
