  • The Greek town of Caulonia was at the border between the territory of Crotone, under whose rule was, with that of Locri. It was also originally achaean colony, but soon came under the powerful influence of nearby Crotone. Is mentioned by sources (Tuc. VII, 25, 2) as flourishing export Center of timber suitable for shipbuilding. The brief summary is according to myth linked to the name of Kaulon, son of the founder of the city and head of the Amazon Clete lineage of Queens on it would have reigned until the conquest (Kroton). The most famous episode in the history of Caulonia is the siege of which he was the victim in 388 BC by Dionysius the elder tyrant of Syracuse: while benefiting from the help of League Italiot and Velia in particular, Caulonia was destroyed the following year, and its territory snatched in Crotone and Locri succumbed to faithful in Syracuse. Rebuilt by Dionysius the younger, was later taken by Campani Reggio (280 BC); Finally, defense in 209 BCE by Hannibal against the Romans, it was from the latter conquered in 205 BC. Since then the city was no longer practically inhabited, and remained only a small station on the coastal route. Of the ancient Greek city, which lies on the site of the modern Monasterace Marina (not to be confused with the modern Caulonia and Marina di Caulonia), remains of habitation highlighted at the lighthouse of Punta Stilo, and fortifications with towers and gates; also remains of a sanctuary at m. 200 SW of the walls on the Hill of Passoliera, whence comes a series of architectural terracotta in the late 6th century. BC now kept in the Museum of Reggio Calabria, and also Greek pottery of the late eighth century. BC The most important monument is the Doric Temple, which is located about 150 m from the sea, near the lighthouse at Punta Stilo (approximately 500 m after the village): he had 6 columns in front and maybe 14 on the side, the roof covering in Parian marble, and is dated to the middle of the 5th century. BC.

  • Begins to take on the appearance of the real Museum, features more ordered and explained well, give a sense of the worthiness of the exhibits housed inside. For the moment it's not open to visitors, as will complete the work June 2016 forecasts, going from a book space, with services to visitors.

  • Arrived at the Museum, the sad fact that was closed for roadworks. You decide to visit the site but you remain disappointed: a path with only explanatory panels, but nothing concrete. only plowed land and olive trees but total absence of archaeological finds. Disappointing ...
