The famous French explorer and oceanographer Jacques-Yves Cousteau appointed Palmarola as "The most Beautiful Island in the Mediterranean Sea"
Pope Silverius was exiled to and died on Palmarola in 537.
San Silverio Shrine, a site where miracles have been confirmed, access to the site is somewhat difficult. Cava Mazzella, a natural cave
