Vicari is a tiny village where it is possible to enjoy a wonderful view of the island and its natural environment.
Vicari was founded in the 13th century by Greeks and later colonised by Romans who built its charming castle. Thanks to its location, the Castle became a famous place where people could find refuge from Barbarian invasions.
