Sicilië, Aeolian Islands, Vulcano


Sicily is called Terra Ballarina by the Sicilians, which means ‘dancing earth’. In the Terra Ballerina in Vulcano, the primal force of the earth bubbles in the fango and in the sea.

Vulcano is one of the seven Aeolian Islands (isole Eolie).  
It is located off the northeast coast of Sicily, and was given its name ‘Eolo’ (God of the wind) by the ancient Greeks. The Aeolian Islands consist of breathtaking volcanic cliffs with coves in between. The amazing rock formations, volcanoes and the history of the Aeolian Islands are unique. Throughout their turbulent past these islands have managed to preserve their own character.

Vulcano is on the UNESCO World Heritage list, to preserve the nature and the sea.

According to Greek mythology the beautiful island of Vulcano was the forge of Hephaestus, the god of fire. Vulcano consists of three ancient craters. The first, in the south, was extinguished centuries ago. The Gran Cratere is still active. The last eruption dates back to 1890. Vulcanello, the third crater, is a cape on the northeastern tip of the island that was caused by a volcanic eruption, nearly 2,000 years ago.

Bathing in between the two volcanoes in the fango bath, your pores absorb the healing power of volcanic minerals and thermal water. In the sea adjacent to the fango there are numerous fumaroles (hot tubs). A bath in the fango stimulates blood circulation and activates perspiration, causing toxins to leave the body and strengthening the natural immune system. The untouched nature and pure environment act together to achieve deep relaxation and cleansing of body and mind.
