A little wild and not very worldly, ideal for those who seek the intensity of the essential and love unspoilt nature. There are three villages in Filicudi : Filicudi Porto, Valdichiesa and Pecorini a Mare, linked by a very scenic road.

The paved road only extends for a few hundred metres, and one of the most difficult places to reach, but definitely not to be missed, is the prehistoric village of Capo Graziano, on top of the promontory of the same name on the eastern side of the island.

The history of the prehistoric village of Capo Graziano (or the village of the Montagnola di Capo Graziano) begins in the Bronze Age, when the people who lived in the village of Filo Braccio (on the coast) decided to move to the top of the Montagnola di Capo Graziano because of enemy incursions from the sea. The Montagnola was a natural protective fortress and the local people decided to settle there where they built a large number of huts.

The archaeological village of Filo Braccio, the oldest settlement related to the Capo Graziano facies, is one of the most important sites for aeolian archaeology.

Below the promontory is the beautiful little beach of Le Punte, made up of large rounded pebbles, accessible from the main road of Filicudi by a small staircase that descends to the sea.

Among the most beautiful excursions in the archipelago, don’t miss the circumnavigation of the island by boat with a visit to the Grotta del bue marino, the faraglione La canna, the islets of the Elephantand Montenassari, and to the Scoglio della fortuna.
