The old, still-inhabited village of Cirella, a short distance from the shoreside resort, climbs a slope below the ruins of a hilltop town that Hannibal razed 2,200 years ago, and that in later centuries was rebuilt and destroyed again, the last time by a French fleet in 1806

CIRELLA was also a Sybarite colony, devastated by Hannibal, then Romanized; the theatrical ruins of Cirella Vecchia , overlooking the SS18, are of a later date, the result of a French bombardment in 1806 (though local lore attributes other, more sinister explanations, most notably a plague of ants).

Cirella has had an eventful history which dates back to the Greek and Roman periods. It was raided on various occasions by the Saracens before begin destroyed in 1806 by the French fleet. There are the ruins of a church and a Romanesque bell tower containing the remains of 15th century frescoes. The so/called Mausoleo di Cirella, situated at the foot of the hill, is a tomb from the Roman period. In the medieval church there is a 16th century bust of the Madonna and Child.
