“Die Blaue Grotte auf Capri”
By Carl Friedrich Seiffert
“Capri Blue Grotto (Grotta Azzura) is a world famous natural attraction of the isle of Capri.
A lot has been written about this natural cave and its surreal, phosphorescent blue light, created by the daylight entering the cave through an underwater opening located below the entrance.
The blue is intensified even more by the fact that the water filters through all the red shades of light and what you see is a blue so vibrant and real you feel like you can capture its essence in a jar.
We know for sure that the Capri Blue Grotto has been known since Roman times, especially under the rule of emperor Tiberius.
The remains of statues of the sea god Neptune/Triton, dating to the 1st Ct. A.D. have been found in the Grotto and they once lined the walls of the cave decorating Tiberius’ private swimming pool or nympheum.
After Roman times the cave was avoided by locals, who believed it to be inhabited by witches and monsters.
The Blue Grotto was “rediscovered” at the beginning of the 19th Ct when a Polish poet August Kopish wrote a book about it.
This started a whole avalanche of poems and novels that, in the spirit of Romanticism and man’s return to nature, glorified the beauties of the Blue Grotto and triggered a flow of visitors to the isle of Capri.”
