The Faraglioni are three mighty and fascinating geological formations that rise from the sea on the southern coast of the isle of Capri: the first, called Stella, is 109 m. high and is linked to the coast; the second, 81 m. high, has a natural tunnel that passes right through it, creating a passage for medium-sized boats; the third, named Scopolo, is 104 m. high and is noted for the presence of a rare exemplary of the blue lizard. Destination for pleasant boat trips the unusual attractive Faraglioni constitute an obligatory stage in the unforgettable circumnavigation of the island. The sight of them from the belvedere at Tragara, 130 m. above sea level, is extraordinarily enchanting. Detached from the other three, opposite Tragara harbour, where the remains of a Roman dock are visible, there is a fourth rock, semicircular in shape, called the Monacone, after the sea-cow, a kind of seal that apparently once lived there. The finding of burials and ancient buildings on the rock have fuelled the legend that Masgaba, the African architect who designed the imperial villas on Capri, was buried here on the orders of Augustus.
