Le Castella - Capo Colonna
Isola Capo Rizzuto, is home to the largest Marine Reserve in Calabria, famous for its aquatic nature, where diving and snorkelling are the favourite activities. The Aragonese Castle at Le Castella, a hamlet of Isola Capo Rizzuto on the Ionian coast, is one of the most beautiful and famous castles in Calabria.
On the sacred promontory Lacinio, a famous temple dedicated to the Greek goddess Hera Lacinia was built- She was the protector of women, pastures and fertility. The temple dates back to the sixth century BC and apart from being a sanctuary, it was also a centre of refreshment and rest for sailors, as well as a bank.
Today only a single Doric column is all that remains of the glories of the past. Solitary and majestic it dominates with its 8.30 meters the undisturbed landscapes, of which it is the undisputed mistress, stretching its gaze over the placid and blue waves of the sea.


Roccelletta di Borgia - The Archaeological Park "Scolacium"
The Archaeological Park "Scolacium", which takes its name of the old city, lies in a wealthy estate with 35 acres of olive trees belonging to the family of the Barons Mazza. Here you can see and imagine what this place was in the past, disputed between the various settlers, from the Greeks to the Romans to the Normans. At the entrance of the park one can visit the ruins of the Norman Basilica. An enormous church in Romanesque style but with strong Arab and Byzantine influences; the earthquake of 1783, almost destroyed the Basilica and left only the outer walls, the apse and part of the facade standing.

Nearby you can visit the Church of the Immaculate Conception or St. Nicola of Women.
Squillace is dominated by its Castle, founded by the Byzantines, besieged and taken by the Saracens, rebuilt by the Normans and modified by the Angevins. From here you can enjoy a wonderful view over the Ionian coast and Catanzaro.
From here many excursions can be undertaken: to the nearby medieval villages, the Abbey of St. Mary della Roccella and Archaeological Park Scolacium
Apart from having a characteristic old town centre there are many other things you can admire in Soverato, among which: the Church of SS. Addolorata, with the precious "Pietà" and the tile with "Ecce Homo" from 1522, both by Antonello Gagini; the ruins of the Old Soverato, initial nucleus of the modern town, which still preserve traces of its ancient and glorious past; the Botanical Garden Santicelli , which contains many rare plants and is located in a pleasing site from where you can enjoy an incredible view.

Set on a hill 240 meters above sea level, the picturesque medieval village has several Byzantine churches arranged in the shape of a Latin cross, and many small alleyways characteristic of medieval towns... The origins are medieval, and more specifically related to the Byzantine era.
Walking around the beautiful old town of medieval origin, we can see many churches, among which are: the Church of the Immaculate Conception, built in the seventeenth century, its interior is completely decorated with fine stucco work, the Franciscan monastery with the Church of Santa Maria degli Angeli, from the seventeenth century which houses works by local artists.

Serra S. Bruno

The Ancient village in the province of Vibo Valentia is situated in a wide valley of beautiful forests. The territory of Serra San Bruno offers many natural, religious and cultural itineraries. Next to naturalistic excursions and the natural spectacle one can also visits to old towns, works of art and museums.
The most important is the church of S. Biagio, which was rebuilt after the earthquake of 1783. Nearby, in front of the War Memorial, there is the Church “dell’Addolorata” (church of 'Our Lady of Sorrows). Inside the church, there is a seventeenth- century altar built by Cosimo Fanzago around 1631.
La Certosa or the Carthusian Monastery is an enclosure community. It is the first Carthusian monastery in Italy and the second of this Order. Around the Charterhouse there is a wall with low towers. At about 3 km form there we can visit the small church of S. Mary Hermitage, surrounded by beautiful pine trees, with the cave of the saint next to it. This cave was the site where St. Bruno retired in prayer and where he was buried. Going further down, there is the lake of Miracles, its water is believed to be miraculous.


Stilo is situated on the slopes of Mount Consolino and has a panoramic position looking over the Ionian sea. The town is embraced by the territory of Ferdinandea which is entirely covered by fir and beech woods.
The name Ferdinandea originates from King Ferdinand II of the Two Sicilies, who used the area for hunting after 1832. He later turned it into a metal industry centre, building here a foundry, ironworks, residential and administrative buildings and stables.
Today only the ruins of the castle remain. You can also visit the Duomo di S. Maria d'Ognissanti (Cathedral of St. Maria of All Saints) with its imposing fourteenth-century portal. However, the true architectural queen of Stilo is La Cattolica. It was founded in the tenth century by the new settlers coming from the coast. This little church has five domes on top of a cubic building and Byzantine frescoes inside.
In town one can also visit the churches of S. Giovanni Terestí, S. Domenico e S. Francesco. Not far from Stilo you can visit the remains of the Ferdinandea, the Cave of St. Maria della Stella and the Monastery of St. Giovanni Vecchio. (John the Elder).


Village of terracotta farmers and pottery craftsmen. These craftsmen work in caves dug into the tuff continuing a tradition of craftsmanship that was thriving in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The Cathedral is dedicated to the Assumption and was consecrated for the first time in 1045 and then in 1222 probably in the presence of Frederick II of Swabia. It is by far the largest church in Calabria and one of the most important.
It preserves the pure lines of the Norman cathedrals with Byzantine system, you can see in the first projecting transept and the arrangement of the semicircular apses.
The interior of the church looks like a basilica. The columns with antique plinths and capitals undoubtedly come from the ancient temples of Locri.
On the left of the transept stairs lead down to the crypt, the oldest part of the cathedral. It has a VIII century Greek cross plan and is supported by 26 columns from Roman villas and Greek temples.
The nucleus of the lower church is the Chapel of Madonna dell’Itria, a small room built in 1261. The chapel is decorated with polychrome marble of 1613. Notice then the floors with tiles of Gerace of the eighteenth century and the wrought iron gates without soldering of 1699 made by artisans from Serra.
The oldest piece is a small reliquary cross from Jerusalem and probably dating back to the twelfth century. Not far from the Cathedral we find a square with three churches, the most important and most significant is that of S. Francis of Assisi, which was once part of a Franciscan monastery damaged by the earthquake of 1783, later it was used as a prison.
The church dates back to the 1252 it has with a neo-Gothic lines and its portal has Arab-Norman decorations. Inside there is a magnificent Baroque altar (1644). The second church in this square is the eighteenth century Church of the Sacred Heart, with a beautiful tiled floor. The third church is the Church of St. Giovannello, a small building that dates back to the tenth or eleventh century. Inside there is a well that once served as a baptismal font.
The only thing that remains of the Castle is a cylindrical tower, parts of the walls and a few scattered ruins. It was once connected to the city by a drawbridge. From the cliff you can see the sea as well as a vast panorama.
Only a few kilometres away there is the Terme di Antonimina, a spa with salt-iodine waters, already known by the Greeks for their healing qualities.
