Important testimonies of Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Norman, Aragonese civilization from the ancient history of the city of Crotone with the temple of Hera Lacinia in Capo Colonna, the Aragonese castle of Le Castella a fraction of the municipality of Isola di Capo Rizzuto , the medieval villages of Santa Severina with museums and historical residences. Behind, the Sila a mountain area with peaks of 2000 meters, full of woods, lakes and wildlife, just 30 kilometers from the sea.

Handicraft

The Calabrian handicraft has archaic roots, the traditional techniques are still visible: Calabria is one of the few "western" regions, which has not undergone any change from the artistic point of view.  From the hand loom, to the chisel, to the wheel lathe, with the small knife, unique and unrepeatable masterpieces are created with ancient expressions and designs. Sumptuous and monumental beech frames, which under the hands of weavers look like musical instruments.

Today there is still the craftsmanship of wrought iron and copper in Serra San Bruno, for gold and silver in Crotone, glass in Bagnara, wicker and straw in Cosenza, Soriano Calabro, San Giorgio Morgeto, Delianuova, Vibo Valentia, Polistena and Gallico.
