"Insula Capreae", so named because from a distance its outline brings to mind a reclining goat (the Greeks called it Kapros - the Island of the Boar); or perhaps because of the many goats living on its rugged surface (that the goats actually existed is indirectly confirmed in 17th Century texts by the praise bestowed upon the manificient, sweet ricotta - made of goats' milk - prepared by the monks in the "Certosa" - the Cistercian Abbey on Capri). Geologically speaking, the island is an extension of the Peninsula of Sorrento and formed of the same limestone. Slightly more than 10 sq km., the island divided between two townships: Capri itself and Anacapri, higher than the former. The Greek prefix, "ana", indicates in fact this greater height.
