The Vasca della Regina: Myth and Legend
The peculiarity of the place, beyond its evocative beauty, lies in a legend passed down over time by local elderly fishermen and farmers. According to the legend, a nymph, in ancient times, used to bathe in complete solitude in the waters in front of the Faraglioni. During one of her daily baths, a monster transformed into a young fisherman approached the nymph. Later, he would be punished for his deceit by the sea god Poseidon, who transformed the monster into an old petrified guardian, whose large effigy is still recognizable today in the rocks of the Vasca della Regina coastline.
