Capo Mortola

Characteristics

Description

Capo Mortola  can be recognized by Villa Hambury, a reddish building surmounted by a prominent square tower on its W side, standing 0.2 mile N of it.

A fresh water spring lies in a depth of 14m, about 300m SSW of the cape. With a calm sea, the boiling action of this spring can be seen on the surface. The spring is marked by a lighted buoy.

Le cap Mortola, au sommet boisé, est débordé sur plus de 300 m par des roches couvertes par endroit d'1 m d'eau. Ces roches sont balisées par une bouée S, il faut s'en écarter d'au moins 300 m.

La grande villa Hambury, à tour carrée (fameuse pour son jardin), se remarque au milieu des arbres.

Capo Mortola, vetta boscosa, è sopraffatto oltre 300 m di rocce coperte di posti da 1 m di acqua. Queste rocce sono caratterizzate da una boa S, dobbiamo deviare almeno 300 m.

La grande villa Hambury, con Torre Quadrata (famosa per il suo giardino), è notevole tra gli alberi.

Si puo ancorare sul lato del Capo W, W di Villa Hanbury, da 7 m di profondità, al riparo dai venti di Levante.
