Holidays in Capraia, hotels and camping sites for tourists
Capraia is located about 30 km northwest of the island of Elba, a beautiful unspoiled island immersed in the Mediterranean. The island is not very big houses only a couple of hotels, hotel and bed and breakfast very welcoming and is cut by a single road linking the port town to Capraia Island, situated on the hill and just 1 km away. Once a penal colony and this has permit preserved almost intact over time. Business development has been blocked to keep it unique in its nature by promoting the development of a nature park to protect the heritage of the island. In high season it is difficult to find a place in the 2 hotels and in the camp on the island, we recommend you go out of season.
Sure to visit the old baroque church of Capraia Island and the convent of St. Augustine, while the fortress of San Giorgio. Unfortunately, these monuments have been damaged by time, but definitely worth a visit.
The hinterland of Capraia Island is characterized by steep and rocky hills, covered with bush, walked through the many trails that cross the entire island.
