Calabria: Tropea and the Coast of the Gods

Famous for its beaches and seas, the Costa degli Dei in Calabria is a unique coastline extending over 40 km. From the white sands of Nicotera to the granite rocks of Joppolo and Coccorino, the long and wide beaches of Briatico and Parghelia and the unique beauty and history of Tropea, the coast is not just a natural marine paradise.
It has characteristic villages, where local festivals are staged, where local uses and customs can be observed and local food and drink sampled. This is a people strongly anchored to its traditions, where hospitality is a sacred duty.
The pearl of the coast, a magnet for the many tourists that are captured by its charm. 60 metres a.s.l. Tropea is the smallest municipality in the province of Vibo Valentia, but it is rich in history and beauty, with its beaches and seascapes, places that have always been attributed to the gods. Places to visit: the Norman cathedral, containing precious works of art, including a late-Byzantine painting of the venerated Madonna of Romania, protector of the city; the famous 15th century Black Christ; tombs of the Galluppi family, and much more. The city centre has a wealth of noble palaces with important entrances.
Capo Vaticano promontory
A beautiful promontory that looks out onto the sea, with views as far as Sicily.
A host of legends revolve around the crystal-clear waters of this place, which “explain” the wonder in observing so much beauty…Capo Vaticano takes its name from “luogo di vaticinio”, a “place of prophecy”.
