Isola di Pantelleria, Italy

Isola di Pantelleria is an island located between Sicily and Tunisia. It belongs to Italy, but names of places and the architecture of the traditional house, called dammusi, shows Arab influence. Of volcanic origin, the island lacks ground water or springs, thus making agriculture difficult. Main products are capers and the world famous passito wine - made from raisins! Although the island is difficult to reach, it has become a favourite holiday destination for celebrities.

Much of the traditional agriculture has been abandoned, some villages are deserted. More recently, traditional houses have been sold to tourists.
