Tropea

Tropea

The beautiful town Tropea, 9 km away from Capo Vaticano, rises on a sandstone cliff, she is the queen of the entire Costa degli Dei for its geographical position and its roots, which lie in the myth of Magna Graecia. The charming village seems to emerge from the rocks and offers postcard views, especially at sunset, when the sun tinges of red the houses’ facades built on the tuff. The center is full of small shops selling typical food products: nduja, cheese, red onion, olive oil. The historic center is really interesting, you can admire noble mansions of the 18th and 19th centuries perched on the cliff with the beach below, the enchanting Grotta Azzurra and 12 churches. We recommend to visit the Franciscan monastery and the Norman Cathedral of 1100.
