The name Faraglione derives from the Greek word ''pharos'', which in Italian means lighthouse. In ancient times, it was customary to light fires on the mountains and rocks near the coast to signal the presence to pass ships. The Faraglioni are not exclusively native to Capri but are in fact present throughout the Mediterranean. However, those local to the area, including poets and writers, have often cited them in their works, leading to the Faraglioni’s great prestige. The 3 Faraglioni of Capri has made a name for themselves, linked to various legends. The first one is still tied to the earth, named Saetta, on which lay the remains of a Roman villa. This is also the highest of the Faraglioni at 109 meters tall. The second, characterized by a natural tunnel 60 meters long, is Stella. The name derives from the cult of the Madonna Della Libera, also known as Stella del Mare or "Stella Maris", to which a fourteenth-century chapel on Mount Castiglione was dedicated. Finally, the outermost one is the Faraglione Scopolo, or "promontory on the sea", which reaches a height of 104 meters. This last Faraglione is the home of a rare species of blue lizard. In reality, the Faraglioni are not 3, but 4. The Faraglione Monacone, named after the presence of the monk seal until the early twentieth century, looks back on the others. The legends connect the Faraglioni to the mythical Odyssey of the Greek poet Homer, who identifies them as the boulders thrown by Polyphemus against the heroic Ulysses. The poet Virgil, in the Aeneid, instead transforms them into the abode of the sirens.
