Belvedere Marittimo is town and comune in the province of Cosenza in the Calabria region of southern Italy.
The town is made of two separate urbanized areas also called “paese” and “marina”. The first is what’s left of the original medieval town, the second was developed in more recent decades and it now represents the center of Belvedere Marittimo’s commercial and turistic services.
The “Castello del Principe” was originally built by the Normands on what is the highest hill by the coast, around the year 1000. The castle was restored and enriched during the Spanish domination to assume the shape and architecture currently visible.
