Crotone: cosa vedere

Le migliori destinazioni da esplorare

Crotone is located on the eastern side of Calabria and is the most important harbour on the calabrian ionian coast. The city is located on a promontory and is divided in two areas: the ancient hamlet surrounded by medieval walls and the modern area, whose districts are dated back to 1870. The historical centre, located on an upland, is surrounded by sixteenth-century walls and still looks like a medieval hamlet, with alleys and narrow streets that lead to the fortress. The old town starts in Piazza Castello square, full of majestic noble palaces such as Palazzo Morelli and Palazzo Barracco. Piazza Pitagora square is the place where the old town meets the modern city.

In Crotone, many cultural and religious events are organized throughout the year. Between the second and the third sunday of may there is the Festival of Madonna di Capocolonna, where a procession takes the relics of the Virgin Mary from the Duomo to Capocolonna with a torchlight procession during the evening. The Sagra del Pesce is a typical event where the visitors can taste local fish-based dishes like the quadaru, a fish soup.

Those who visit Crotone cannot miss the district of La Peschiera, in the historical centre. Here many interesting buildings are located: the eleventh-century Duomo, completely rebuilt during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries; the church of Immacolata, built in 1738 and dedicated to Immaculate Conception; the church of San Giuseppe, with one single nave and an apse where a series of frescos dedicated to the Sacred Family and two neapolitan wooden statues are preserved; the Sanctuary of Santa Maria di Capo Colonna, built on a preexisting temple dedicated to Hera Lacinia of which only a doric pillar is left; the Castle of Crotone in the old town.
