Volcanic temper, Mediterranean character and an Arabic outline: this is Pantelleria, known as the "Black Pearl" of the Mediterranean sea owing to its peculiar dark and intense colouring deriving from the matching of lava rocks with the cobalt blue waters. - heritage of the Arab rule (800-1000 A.D.) - sounding most of all in the names of its villages such as Khattibuale, Khamma and Muègen and which is findable and visible in the architecture of its "dammusi", the typical houses of Pantelleria, made out of lava stone and characterized by dyed cupola-shaped roofs.
And not in these things only but that particular touch is also verifiable in the never ending train of dried low walls revealing the island's agricultural soul especially based on the caper groves and on the vineyards of "zibibbo" grapes…producing also the renowned "passito di Pantelleria".
