Southern Italy region

Tropea Historical Centre:

Going across Via Umberto I, you will get to a square called Villetta del Borgo, from where you can enjoy the "island" with its Sanctuary.

Along via Independenza you will find Palazzo dei Conti Gabrielli on your right.

The street leads to the town centre, Piazza Ercole, where on the left side there is the statue of the famous philosopher Pasquale Galluppi.

Walking down via Roma, you will arrive to piazza Duomo, where there is the Norman Cathedral.

You can proceed along via Boiano on your left to admire the ancient Portals of palazzo D'Acquino and palazzo Braghò (1721), then you will arrive at Largo S. Francesco, which is sorrounded by several mansions: Tranfo, Adilardi, Fazzari, Collareta, Giffone, Di Tocco, Toraldo and the Church of San Francesco.

Walking across Largo Municipio, where there is the Church Del Gesù and by it there is a small square, Largo GesuitI with on both sides the mansions Barone and Parisi and opposite the one of Duchi De Mendoza, you will take Via Lauro, where there are the mansions De Mendoza and Adilardi on one side and Palazzo Toraldo di Francia on the other one.

Then you will get in Largo Migliarese, the terminal part of Corso Vittorio Emanuele II, with the “affaccio”, a balcony over the sea, from where you can enjoy a wonderful sea sight.

It is a very Medieval zone the one that is possible to admire walking across the small squares of S. Chiara and Galzerano and along Via Lepanto, that crosses Via Indipendenza, from where going up via Rivellini and then crossing Largo S. Giuseppe, you will return to Corso Vittorio Emanuele II.

Norman Cathedral

Norman Cathedral at the bottom of Via Roma, whose interior harbours a couple of unexploded American bombs from the last war (one accompanied by a grateful prayer to the Madonna), a Renaissance ciborium and a statue of the Madonna and Child from the same period.

The central apse also has a much-venerated fourteenth-century icon of the Virgin Maria of Romania.

Santa Maria dell'Isola

The Church of Santa Maria dell'Isola is built on a limestone rock overlooking the water. Stroll out to visit the church on a path lined with fishermen's caves.

Of Basilian origin, the church was remodeled in Gothic style, then given another face-lift after an earthquake in 1905.

The interior has an 18th-century nativity and some fragments of medieval tombs. It is a remarkable sight on a nice day as its yellow and white facade stands out against the blue sky.

Museum

Devoted to traditional Calabrian crafts and trades (wood turning, olive oil making and so forth) and featuring dozens of meticulously hand-made mechanical models of Calabrian peasants going about their daily business.

Tropea

Located on the Tyrrhenian coast of Vibo Valentia, along the slopes of the Poro mountain, the town of TROPEA, cited by some historical sources, dates back to the Roman period, evidence points to the fourth century. A.D. as confirmed by some early Christian inscriptions, even if the official documents proliferate especially from the sixth century onwards and in particular with the arrival in Calabria of the Byzantine general named Belisarius.

To put an end to the presence of the Goths, the town was fortified by the erection of walls and the castle, around which the city develops, which was accessible initially through two gates: Porta Vaticana to the west and the Porta Mare which connected the port and a third gate: Porta Nova in 1785.

From 1875 to 1883 the castle and city walls were demolished and today you can only see some parts of the fortifications in the west, where Porta Vaticana was located.

While walking the streets of Tropea's town centre it is possible to admire eighteenth-century portals of Renaissance, Baroque, Neoclassical and Muslim influences (by the raids taken place) that reflect the tastes and social status of the owners.

The most representative is the Norman Cathedral, built on a former cemetery which dates back to Byzantine and Norman period when Robert Guiscard conquered the village.

But the real symbol of the town is the Sanctuary of Santa Maria of the Island, located on top of a small and picturesque spit of land jutting into the sea.

Ascetic location for Basilian hermits, it has undergone many renovations over the years, now it represents an important place of pilgrimage for the worship of the miracles of the Madonna.

In recent years a number of factors (an excellent city administration, increased investments and more) have made Tropea reach levels never seen before. Now thousands of Italian tourists (in August) and foreigners (from April to October) each year visit Tropea and the surroundings. There is still much to be done to stand up against other more famed seaside resorts of Italy, but the path taken is the right one according to many and every year that goes by Tropea becomes a city better equipped to respond to all needs of the tourist market.
