The town of Lampedusa does not offer special attractions. The city life takes place mainly in the central Roma Street. It is important to remember the obelisk Cassodoro, by Arnaldo Pomodoro.
There are two monuments in the New Harbour, by Gerry Scalso : “Triumph of the Sea” and “Tribute to the Fisherman”.
The people of Lampedusa are very devoted to Our Lady of Porto Salvo, the patron saint of seafarers . The statue, usually kept in the Church of St. Gerland , is brought in procession to the modest homonymous sanctuary on the occasion of her consecration which is on September the 22nd.
