Tropea is the pearl of the Tyrrhenian Sea and in fact one of the most popular tourist destinations. This little town impresses, not only, with its beautiful Panorama but also with its history. From a terrace on the sheer cliff top it’s possible to admire the Church of Saint Mary. The cathedral of the historical centre is one of the oldest buildings of the city and was built in Norman times. In the course of the centuries it was rebuilt many times and today for the most part it is in the baroque style. Inside the Church there are some artistic works, for example, a picture by Lippo Benivieri, the well-known “Our Lady of Romania”, who is one of the patron saints of Tropea.

There is the bishop’s palace near the cathedral, which has a chapel with a 17th century floor made of Neapolitan majolica and an altar in stucco with a picture that represents the adoration of the shepherds. In the centre, near the cathedral, there are some historical palaces, such as the D’Aquino and Tranfo Palace and some other buildings of the 18th-Century like the Torado Palace. In this town there are many other interesting religious buildings, such as the church and monastery of St. Francesco of Paola, the Church of the Madonna of the Rosary and many others. As you can see there are a lot of worth-seeing places in Tropea. So don’t miss it.
