Tropea

The sanctuary of Santa Maria dell’Isola, situated right on a cliff above the sea, can be reached by a windling path from the beach. Visit the church and do not miss the garden that offers breath-taking views of the sea from above – also because of its hidden terraces and panoramic benches, perfect for romantics.

Legend has it that this picturesque little town was originally founded by Hercules, therefore the port is called a Hercules Port. The name Tropea dates back to the V Century after Christ and suffered for several hundred years under the constant attacks of the Saracens.
From the Norman era and on, the independent town of Tropea became the popular nest of noble families who constructed their luscious palaces on the spectacular cliff above the sea. The narrow streets of Tropea, the ancient noble palaces and the whiteness of the beaches below in contrast with the deep blu sea are an extraordinary experience for the senses.

The town has almost completely preserved its 16th century planning.
Admire the “Porta Nuova”, the opening above the sea of piazza Galluppi with the savage cliff precipitating into the white beach stretching below.At a short distance there is another cliff, on which is erected the sanctuary of Santa Maria dell’Isola.
