The main tourist resort in Calabria is the sea, with a long coastline facing three seas ( Tyrrhenian, Ionian and Strait of Messina ) , a particular richness of the fish fauna Italian , in a landscape of beaches and cliffs. The lack of industrial development and the absence of big cities on most of the area has allowed us to preserve the pristine sea for a long time , and Calabria is still considered a natural paradise. The arrivals in 2007 were 1,325,825 and 242,694 Italian aliens . [25]

The poet Gabriele d' Annunzio called the promenade of Reggio Calabria "the most beautiful kilometer in Italy " , favored by the presence on the territory of several archaeological sites (Reggio , Locri , Taureana , Crotone, and Sybaris Scolacium just to name a few) and natural beauty that attract the interest of visitors .

" Fortresses, churches, cemeteries , woods and ponds are natural elements that characterize the inland areas of the provinces of Reggio , Cosenza , Catanzaro , Crotone and Vibo Valentia.

Capo Vaticano

Capo Vaticano is a wide beach resort town of Tropea (VV ) , full of accommodation equipped with entertainment facilities . The promontory that takes the name reaches the maximum height of 124 meters and is made ??of a special granite, white - gray, studied all over the world for its geological features .

Of great importance is the presence of giant fern , dwarf palm on the rock " The Diver" and the existence of marine sediments of the Quaternary , which make Cape Vaticano a must for many scholars of Paleontology . The particular morphology of the area, with river valleys and deep incisions in an area with a typical terrace with steps, allows easy access to the fossiliferous strata of the Miocene .

Capo Vaticano

Typical of tropical seas shells , shark teeth , corals, are associated with skeletal finds parts of continental and marine mammals . The whole area is still famous for its abundance of Clipeastri , ancient echinidi the characteristic pyramid shape now extinct.

The promontory of Capo Vaticano is situated on the coast of the Tyrrhenian coast of Calabria, in front of the Stromboli and the Aeolian Islands , separating the Gulf of St. Eufemia and Gioia Tauro , and includes the coastal area from the Bay to the Bay of Tone of Santa Maria and the foothills of Mount Poro . On the promontory is installed since 1870 a lighthouse from the cylindrical tower , building on a floor with a roof terrace .

The most picturesque bay is Grotticelle , formed by three adjacent beaches . According to a French magazine , Capo Vaticano is considered the third most beautiful beach in Italy and among the 100 most beautiful beaches in the world.

The famous Venetian writer Giuseppe Berto, after touring Italy decided to stay and live here , through some of his books " The stretch of coast that culminates in Capo Vaticano is full of history and beauty. You could call Costabella with a hint of regret and nostalgia . "

Capo Vaticano

In another work , Berto wrote: "I think it's called Capo Vaticano Vatican for the same reason that a hill in Rome is named the same way: priests and soothsayers went there to peer into the future , based on the flight of birds and other things . Two hundred yards off the tip there is a rock called Mantineo , and in greek " manteuo " means communicating with the divine will . The Chief was a sacred place , and still is , in spite of everything. "

Capo Vaticano is also known as the best country in the world that produces the red onion , also known as red onion , taste particularly sweet. In fact, thanks to the substances contained in the ground " only one cultivated in Capo Vaticano is sweet " and is sought after in the domestic and international markets .
