NOTES ON LA MADDALENA
The town of La Maddalena is the largest settlement on the island of Maddalena, where the town gets its name.
It contains a busy harbour and splendid 18th century buildings with wrought iron balconies.
The island is one of seven, known collectively as Arcipelago Di La Maddalena.
Maddalena and Caprera, the two largest, are connected by a narrow mobile bridge.
Caprera was the last resting place of Giuseppe Garibaldi, his house now a museum dedicated to him.
The islands were declared a national park in 1994 and can only be reached by boat, with regular ferries leaving Palau.
