Corigliano Calabro

Situated in the heart of the Sibari Plain, between the slopes of the Sila and the Pollino mountains facing the Ionian Sea, the area around Corigliano presents various morphological characteristics. In just a few kilometres you pass from a Mediterranean landscape to Alpine scenery. Here Greek, Latin, Byzantine and Norman civilisations have marked the land leaving so much to discover. The VX century Castle is a treasure trove: elegant, solid, majestic, with four crenelated turrets and a massif draw bridge. Inside there are important works of art, for example the triptych by Domenico Morelli ( Madonna with child and a saint). These can be discovered wandering through the elegant salons. The old historical part of the town is also worth a visit with its historic churches dating from the XI and XVII centuries. The Churches of Saint Peter and Saint Paul, Sant’Antonio of Padova, Santa Chiara, San Francesco di Paola, Santa Maria Maggiore. On the shores of the Ionian Sea we can find Schiavonea ( zona del Cupo) where it is possible to visit the Torre del Cupo, the Sanctuary della Madonna della Schiavonea and Il Quadrato Campagna. This is an imposing rectangular building built between 1846 and 1850 by Baron Luigi Campagna.

Visit: The castle – The Church of San Francesco – The Church of Saint Peter and Saint Paul – The Church of Santa Maria – The Sanctuary of the Madonna of Schiavonea.


This is an important city facing the Ionian Sea between Corigliano Calabro and Cariati. It lies on the edge of the Sila Greca. It is built on a sandstone hill which dominates the sea. This was the most important centre for Byzantine culture in Calabria. The Byzantine influence was omnipresent in the city both culturally and architecturally. Rossano has been called the "Ravenna of the South" or "Little Ravenna". When looking at Rossano from afar its isolated, protected position is evident and is symbolic of the mystical aura surrounding Byzantine culture.  The churches of San Bernardino, San Panaghia, Santa Maria del Patire, Santa Maria del Pilere and all the many others merit careful attention. Do visit the Diocesan Museum and not only to admire the Codex Purpureus but also for the many other works of art kept in it. In the Località Zolfara visitors can find a modern  well-equipped Acquapark, Odissea 2000. There are special terms for people staying in our holiday resort.

Visit: The Cathedral – The Diocesan Museum – The Church of San Bernardino – The Church della Panaghia, The Church of the Madonna del Pathirion.
