Punta Spadillo Lighthouse, Pantelleria, Italy by Mirella Cotella

Picture Story

We lived Pantelleria contrary to what one could have expected, and violent sudden showers of rain were unloading every day on the unmistakable white roofs of the dammusi and the narrow, only partially paved streets that hurt wound themselves and climbed the slopes of what is at all the effects of a volcanic cone oozed so much water that they were almost not practicable, and the rocks collapsed from the slopes made the road dangerous. It had been an exceptional event, as confirmed by the comments of the old fishermen of the island ... the leaden sky was reflected in a sea even darker and more threatening, with the waves that in turn hit streets, stairways and paths. Somehow we had 'with the utility car rented, reached the old lighthouse on the coast, witness of excursions, piracy, and cruel historical events.

The building located in an expanse of black lava rock, suggestive even if in a state of decay and abandonment, indeed precisely for that on that fascinating day, with the storm that was just moving away and, in front, the coral rocks overhanging the sea ​​and overlooking the Sicilian coasts. Punta Spadillo is located in the north-eastern stretch of the island of Pantelleria, between the small lake of Ondine and Cala Cottone. With the privilege of being able to admire a unique panorama and the opportunity to walk the paths which lead to coves enclosed between the black rocks, including the Laghetto delle Ondine, and the crystal clear waters, deep and rich in fish, we forgot the rain and the persistent bad weather.
