Project Description

This village is perched on the cliff of Calvary Mount, in the province of Reggio Calabria, 250 meters above sea level. It is a maze of narrow streets and paths full of interesting views, stone houses with arches, now reduced to a sort of ghost town after having its inhabitants moved into towns built along the coast. Some parts of the mountain have collapsed but it remains a fascinating place, full of mystery, one of the most characteristic of the Grecanica Area.
