history of Li Galli


Hotels Positano Hotel Royal Prisco Positano accommodations in Positano Amalfi Coast
 

 In the 20th century the small islands of Li Galli in Positano, have come back to the centre of public attention as a result of the famous owners who bought them and, for long periods, lived there.

The first of these was the famous choreographer and dancer Leonide Massine, followed by the unforgettable Eduardo De Filippo and, finally, by another famous Russian dancer: Rudolf Nurejev.

So after many years of solitude, these magical islands have again returned to the very centre of the legends of Positano.

However, more famous than these illustrious people, were the first inhabitants of these islands:  the mermaids.

According to legend, this archipelago of small islands including Li Galli” in Positano (they that have many different names : il Gallo lungo, la Rotonda, l’ Isola dei Briganti, l’ Isola di San Pietro, la Castelluccia, Vetara, Galluzzo, l’ Isca),  offered refuge to Partenope, Leucosia and Ligia (the three mermaids who were for some half woman half fish and for  others half woman half birds).

So it is not surprising that Li Galli were also called Le Sirenuse and with such fame, these islands of Positano, have always been legendary – to such an extent that a famous Roman nobleman, most probably a courtesan of Tiberio, decided to emulate his emperor and bought a villa on an island smaller than Capri : Il Gallo Lungo.

In the middle ages, Li Galli grew in fame and first hosted a monastery and then a prison. During the Angioni period its strategic position became more and more evident and guard towers were constructed.
Today these small islands of Positano are part of the marine park of Punta della Campanella.

The rocks of Li Galli are amongst the most panoramic in positano.   They are privately owned and not accessible and this is probably the reason why  the  famous Blue lizards, which almost died out, are still found here as well as in other nearby places like i Faraglioni of Capri and at Punta della Campanella.
