THE CITY OF
CROTONE

In the city of Crotone it is interesting to visit the old city that winds from the square of the Castle of Charles V, owned by the State, overlooked by imposing noble palaces such as Palazzo Morelli, seat of the territorial office of Crotone and the Sila of the Superintendence for the Archaeological Heritage of Calabria, and the eighteenth-century Palazzo Barracco.

From here a maze of very narrow streets (the vineddri or vichi) and numerous squares overlooked by massive noble palaces. The National Archaeological Museum of Crotone is located on via Risorgimento.

ART & HISTORY

This leads to the Duomo and to the very central Piazza Pitagora, the junction between the old town and the new town. The fish market is a characteristic district of the historic center. Here you will find various examples of art: the Cathedral built in the 11th century, then renovated in the 16th and 18th centuries. Inside we find a baptismal font with a zoomorphic base and the painting of the Madonna di Capocolonna or Black Madonna, an object of devotion.

The new city instead develops from Piazza Pitagora towards the outside of the city. During the evening it is very nice to walk along Viale Cristoforo Colombo and the Lungomare Gramsci which can be accessed directly from the marina.
