The Island of San Pietro has an extension of 51 km2, it is the second island of the Sulcitan archipelago. Its coasts are high and rocky bathed by crystal clear waters, while its interior is covered by Mediterranean scrub. Around the Island you will see the seagull and the falcon of the Queen.
The island has volcanic origins, it is geologically famous because the rocks known as “commenditi” take their name from a particular area of the island where they were studied and classified for the first time.
Carloforte is the only town on the island. It was founded during the reign of Carlo Emanuele III by a colony of Ligurian fishermen from Tabarka, an island off the coast of Tunisia.
