Filicudi is a wild and beautiful island. It is the ancient “Phoenicusa” so called for its fern vegetation which was very abundant. Together with Alicudi it is geologically the oldest and wildest of the Aeolian Islands.
The Porto area is the center of the island where the island’s small businesses are located. In the south-western part of the island is the small village of “Pecorini”, with the fishermen’s harbor and a small pebble beach.
The promontory of Capo Graziano is a destination not to be missed and is about half an hour’s walk from the port. Capo Graziano is in fact one of the most important places for the archeology of the Aeolian Islands.
