We started the visit of the Tremiti Islands from the Island of St. Nicholas, the most significant one from a scenic point of view.

The island is dominated by the Castle on whose top you find the church of Santa Maria. In the church there are a magnificent wooden altarpiece, a beautiful Romanesque floor and an important crucifix painted on a panel. All works date back to the thirteenth century.

Going down, at the end of the visit, we enjoyed magnificent views of the other islands: Capraia, Cretaccio and San Domino.
