  • When the Normans conquered Reggio took the place of the Byzantines and built their castles that had to check the naval movements to and from the Strait. This castle was part of the chain of "motte" all the way to Scylla. The ruins that can be seen above the old abandoned village of Amendolea. overlooking the Valley of the river of the same name. The scenery is great, almost magical in the late afternoon. Advise you not to lose it.

  • The Castello Ruffo dell' Amendolea steeply above the village with a beautiful panoramic view of the Fiumara to the sea. Apparently the plant was opened up tourism many years ago (signs, paths, handrails...), it finds but hardly or no maintenance. This damages the atmosphere, but not that almost mystical works with your loneliness. The views in the wild Aspromonte and the bergamot trees to the sea is really great. An absolute recommendation, if you are looking for discoveries away from the large tourist traps. Access is via a steep and narrow road about Amendolea. If one doesn't dare to this ride, you can park your car in Amendolea at the entrance and become the ruins on foot. For photographers, visit advisable before noon, because then the light is better.
