Calabria: a land of sea, mountains and centuries-old popular traditions, home to the Bronzes of Riace and the Pitagora, Aspromonte and Sila.
Until recently, Calabria was the chosen destination of just a few well-read and adventurous tourists travelling through Southern Italy in search of unspoilt countryside, mountains, and sea.
It was in the 1980's that, on the coast of Riace, fishermen found two bronze statues, presumably representing slaves and dating back to the Hellenic period.
News of the discovery quickly spread and a stream of tourists began to visit the Museo Nazionale della Magna Grecia in Reggio Calabria to admire the marvellous "Bronzi di Riace" and, as a consequence, the historical importance of the region and the clear blue seas, luscious green countryside and wooded mountain slopes of Calabria finally acquired their more then deserved world wide fame.

Calabria, sea, and sacrality. Calabria is characterized by a mixture of the influences of the sea and those of religion. Belvedere Marittimo - the name Belvedere, or "panoramic viewpoint" perfectly describes the vista of the sea from here. You will also find an 11th century castle, built by Ruggero il Normanno.
Internationally famous, Tropea is situated between the Gulf of St Eufemia and the Gulf of Gioia Tauro. The town is set on a hill known as "la rupe", at the foot of Mount Poro.
The visitor will be struck immediately by the spectacular natural landscape, by the multicoloured sea and white beaches and, in particular, the forty kilometres of coast known as the "Costa degli Dei" ("Coast of the Gods"), which is considered a true marvel of the nature.
Tropea is home to numerous Churches of great artistic, historical and religious value, these include the Norman Cathedral, the Church of St Pietro in Ripas, the Church of St Demetrio. To visit: St Leonardo's cliff, Villa Braghò, and the islet of Santa Maria on which there is the Sanctuary of St Maria dell'Isola. Amongst the events held in Tropea are the Festa della Madonna dell'Isola, the Festa della Madonna di Romania, and the "I Tri da Truci". Diamante is one of Calabria's principal bathing resorts, its crystal clear sea and indented coastline attracting great numbers of holiday makers each year. Then there is the islet of Cirella, rising up from the sea directly opposite the center of Diamante, and boasting a seabed rich in silver Poseidon. On the islet of Cirella itself, numerous traces of the Roman period can be seen, such as the "Teatro dei ruderi". If Scalea, situated on the Thyrennian coast just south of Praia a Mare, is now one of Calabria's most popular tourist destinations, during the distant Norman and Anjevin periods it was an important commercial hub and active center of cultural exchange. It is believed that the local dialect, more like those found in the Campania region than anywhere in Calabria, was likely to have been the result of frequent journeys Northwards.
In recent decades, a great number of modern hotels have been built so as to accommodate the tourists who flock to Scalea each summer. The town's historic center is particularly beautiful, built on terraces looking out over the clear blue sea. The local cuisine, not surprisingly based predominantly on fish and seafood, is highly acclaimed. Tuna and swordfish are the major protagonists prepared in every possible manner.
For decades, if not centuries, Amantea has been one of the most popular Calabrian tourist destinations, and the true jewel of the Tyrrhenian coast. Situated between Paola and Lamezia Terme, the town is widely known for its sites of great historic and natural beauty, not least of which the crystal clear sea which laps Amantea's fine sandy beaches.
The old center of the town, which spreads out along the slopes of a hill, is characterised by the remains of ancient fortifications, the old perimeter walls, the castle and watch towers, as well as numerous churches and ecclesiastic edifices, some as the Palazzo delle Clarisse and the San Bernardini da Siena Convent, this latter built during the late baroque period. Visitors should certainly make time for a visit to "la Grotta", bay situated beneath the historic center, which once provided the ideal landing place for all manner of boats and merchant ships.
