Notes on the Geography of Italy: Giglio: Photo 12

world pictures Italy: Giglio

The view from Castello down to the island's west coast, facing the infinite Mediterranean. This is the island's best beach, which is why most tourist accommodation is here, in the relatively new town called Campese. Here, too, there's a defensive tower, visible at the north end of the beach. Built by the Medicis, it helped repel the island's last pirate assault--Tunisian pirates who attacked in 1799.
