His name appeared in 1700, stems from the fact that the location was chosen as the site of the Kingdom of Aragon.

Safe landing site that allows any wet weather, although lowland farm to which I have been the cause of numerous shipwrecks at all times.
A few hundred meters from the ferry wreck of a Roman ship has generated considerable archaeological interest.

In the cove there are also buildings used for disinfection and quarantine of ships in transit.

These structures were used when Asinara now open to residents who had moved to Stintino, has become a health and international penal colony.

Son nom apparu en 1700, découle du fait que l'emplacement a été choisi comme site du Royaume d'Aragon.

Lieu de débarquement sûr qui permet de mouiller par tout temps, bien que les bas-fonds qui la ferme à l'E ont été la cause de nombreux naufrages à toutes les époques.
A quelques centaines de mètres de l'embarcadère une épave d'un navire romain a suscité beaucoup d'intérêt archéologique.

Dans l'anse il y a aussi des bâtiments utilisés pour la désinfection et la quarantaine des navires en transit.

Ces structures ont été utilisées quand l'Asinara, maintenant ouverte aux habitants, qui s'étaient déplacés à Stintino, est devenue la un centre de santé et une colonie pénale internationale.

Il suo nome, comparso nel 1700, deriva dal fatto che la località venne scelta come sede reale legata al Regno d'Aragona.
E' punto d'approdo molto sicuro perchè consente l'ancoraggio in qualsiasi condizione di mare, anche se le secche che la chiudono a levante sono state la causa di numerosi naufragi in ogni epoca.
A poche centinaia di metri dal molo un relitto di una nave romana ha suscitato un notevole interesse archeologico.

Nella cala sono presenti, inoltre, gli edifici utilizzati per la disinfezione e per la quarantena delle navi in transito.
Queste strutture vennero usate quando l'Asinara, ormai espropriata agli abitanti, trasferitisi a Stintino, divenne sede di una stazione sanitaria internazionale e Colonia Penale.
