Faraglioni are certainly the best renowned Capri's
feature in the world. They are three (to tell the truth there's another one
apart, as we'll see later): the first one, joined to the coast, is called
'Stella' (Star) or also 'F. di terra' (F. on earth) and it is 109 meters high.
The second, that's the smallest, is called simply 'F. di mezzo' (Middle F.) and
it's 81 meters high. The last one on the outside is named 'Scopolo' but is also
called 'F. di fuori' (Outward F.) and it is 104 meters. They are famous even for
hosting a rare variety of lizard, the so-called 'Blue lizard' (lacerta coerulea
muralis or faraglionensis) that had generated a peculiar bluish colour all over
its body. Once they thought it lived exclusively on Capri's Faraglioni, but it
seems to be present also on other similar rocks along Sicily coast.
