Capovaticano Resort Thalasso & Spa - MGallery

See rates

The Capovaticano Resort Thalasso & Spa is located on one of the most beautiful stretches of the Tyrrhenian coast in Capo Vaticano, a place rich in history and legends, and a sacred place for the people of Magna Græcia.

Legend has it that the prophetess Manto lived in a cave on the Capo Vaticano headland; sailors would visit her to discover the will of the gods and it is from her name that Mantineo, a rock situated 219 yds (200 m) off the headland, derives its name.

At the Capovaticano Resort, you can watch the sun set behind the Aeolian Islands while sipping an unforgettable aperitif on a beach that can only be reached by sea; a little bit of paradise enveloped in myriad colors.
