Starting from the port of Palinuro and climbing along a traced path, you’ll reach the top of Capo Palinuro where the lighthouse and the weather station are located. Along the way, you can admire breathtaking views over the rocky cliffs of the head where the Reef Gull, Pilgrim Hawk and the precious Palinuro Primula can still live undisturbed.
