FEW WORDS ABOUT

Palmaria Island

The island Palmària (A Parmæa in Ligurian) with its area of 1.89 square kilometers is in fact the largest island of the Spezzino Archipelago and all five Ligurian islands.
Situated in front of the village of Porto Venere, from which it is separated by a narrow arm of the sea called Le bocche, it is part of an archipelago formed also by the islands of Tino and Tinetto.

portovenere

The island has a triangular shape: the sides facing Porto Venere and the Gulf of La Spezia are the most anthropized and gently degrade to sea level, covered by typical Mediterranean vegetation.
The west side of the island, facing the open sea, is characterized by high cliffs overlooking the water, in which there are many caves.
