From the ship Capraia appears inaccessible, surrounded as it is by a deep blue night sea in which it plunges its steep cliffs, it seems impossible that there is a landing … then, protected by the strong S. Giorgio, the port appears. Brulla, with its fragrant helichrysum garrigues, fascinates us with the dark rocks that bear witness to its volcanic origin and which reach its maximum splendor in the red Punta dello Zenobito.
