Images of Panarea and the Aeolian Islands

Rugged and volcanic, the Aeolian islands off north eastern Sicily are recognized and protected by Unesco as a World Heritage Site because of their unique natural beauty.

Most of the images in this section are of Panarea, the smallest of the archipelago of seven islands. It offers particularly beautiful views of whitewashed cuboid houses with columned terraces, set in an almost surreal landscapes of giant boulders, and surrounded by flowering cactuses, fig, lemon and almond trees. Each house has mouth-watering views of the deep blue Mediterranean sea.
