Carlotto and La Madonnetta is a beautiful bay on the western coast, wich ends with a characteristic small beach sheltered from the winds. It takes its name from the nearby military anti-aircraft battery. The side facing Spargi hosts, on a rocky spur, a votive chapel – called La Madonnetta – founded by the old fisherman Michele Scotto as a devotional tribute to the Virgin who reportedly saved him during a storm. Here, every 1st of May celebrations are held in honour of the Virgin, an anniversary much felt by La Maddalena citizens.
