...one of the most beautiful towns in Calabria with an expansive view along the south Tyrrhenian coast. Austere and majestic, Tropea rises out of the promontory of Monte Poro which lies between the two gulfs of Sant’Eufemia and Gioa. It overlooks a mirror of sky-blue, crystal-clear sea, with its incredible rocks: "La Pizzuta","Formicoli","San Leonardo" and "Isola Bella".
The wild, white, sandy beaches which snake their way into little grottoes and creeks are interrupted by valleys and fertile, rippling hills full of fruit and citrus fruit trees, onion and vegetable fields, bougainvillaea, verbenas, lime trees, jasmine and other sweet-smelling Mediterranean plants.
Apart from the sparkling unpolluted sea, the city itself offers a fascinating historical and artistic profile, thanks to its patrician houses with their impressive entrances adorned by capitals and frescoes by important artists and to the numerous, ancient churches rich in sacred images recalling singular legends. Its typical little, deserted squares and piazzas reachable only by way of narrow alleywa ys and populated by mythical ghosts, take us back to the days of the Saracen invasions..
