  • Next to the Cathedral and Museum, lies this little gem, absolutely not to be missed if you happen into the area.

  • Spectacular Byzantine architecture, which bears witness to the history of this small village that was the capital of the Byzantine thema (read religious-military administration) of Santa Severina, Calabria stronghold northern area between the 6th and 12th centuries. The circular structure externally, rearing a octagonal and square body, in turn surmounted by a lantern on plate with window with tiles. The Greek cross, whose arm is stretched, it has an apse rebuilt in the 17th century. A spool of Roman column serves as the baptistery, although in reality it is good to know that this place was not born for this function, but most likely as martyrium, namely as a sanctuary on the remains of a martyr. The entrance has many possibilities: if open the Church and if you open the door to the passage in the same, take their keys at the nearby museo diocesano, safer to retrieve the keys to the Castle Museum, but you will pay something. Not to be missed!

  • The baptistery is often locked. It is definitely worth a visit. The friendly operations in close proximity to the bar have a key and open the door!
