Via Roma (Roma Street) and the port is the city centre, or rather the only part of the island where inhabitans live and where tourists and citizens go to enjoy the night or to eat some Sicilian delicacies.

Going far from the city centre, you can find some Dammusi. In the past, when the agriculture was the most important source of money in this island, Lampedusa people used to live in Dammusi, a little building made by local red rocks. It is a typical building that you have to see if you want to say “I know all about Lampedusa”.
