  • I was amazed by the beauty of this church which is located in one of the most beautiful villages of Calabria. Altomonte.

  • It's an example of Angevin architecture in Calabria, its construction began in the 13th century. In the following century it passed to the Dominicans, who founded a monastery. In the 16th century, was built a new two-storey building with the cloister, now restored and used as a museum. The Church actually looks a bit bare but inside you can still admire the original giant wooden inlaid access gate, a beautiful antique lectern, a wooden choir where the Dominicans used perform Gregorian chants. To the left of the presbytery there is a chapel dedicated to Saint Michael with a beautiful carved and gilded wooden altar and a wooden statue in the niche of the same San Michele. To the right of the presbytery there is the statue of the Madonna is carried in procession. Fun fact: at Easter is changed the dress and uses an all-white robe. In the Middle, at the bottom, a large sheet of glass covers an ancient Baptismal immersion. The visit, thanks to local tour guide's explanations, it becomes enjoyable because the news will enrich the knowledge of the place. Be sure to visit the above mentioned Museum, located in the old monastery and contiguous whose entrance is inside the cloister.

  • If you do stop in Altomonte is convenient for a ride to the small town a few km from the highway. Everything is still just like old times. In the square stands the Church of Santa Maria della Consolazione, beautiful on the outside but now poor inside where little is left of the old. Interesting little Museum next to the Church with the kiosk. The view from the square deserves a break, as well as the old village and the alleys and shops. A half day pleasant and different from the hustle and bustle of the big city.
