The Aeolian Islands... Salina

It’s the second biggest Island, and the Monte delle Felci and Monte dei Porri, extinct Volcanoes, are the highest points of the whole archipelago.
The two hills gave it its ancient name : Didyme or “twins”.
It has three independently administered towns: S. Marina, Malfa and Leni.
The other hamlets on the island are: Lingua, Rinella, Val di Chiesa, Pollara and Torricella.
Salina is the most fertile of the Aeolian Islands.
Grapes (from which the famous sweet wine Malvasia is made) and capers are grown on the island and exported all over the world.
