ROTONDELLA

Rotondella is a panoramic centre of Val Sinni, which lies on the summit of a hill dominating the neighbouring Jonic coastal tract.

History

The habitation appeared for the first time in history by the name of Rotunda Maris (1267).

It was a fief of the Sanseverino family which was destroyed by the Saracens, but immediately reconstructed at the beginning of the XVI century.

A visit to the City

A visit to Rotondella is accompanied by continual panoramic glimpses from where one can enjoy a visit to the surrounding territory and the Ionian Sea.

The Mother Church which is dedicated to S. Maria delle Grazie (XVII century) and houses interesting wooden statues and the Sant’Antonio Church with its beautiful polychromed marble altar are both noteworthy.

In the centre one can enjoy some nobiliary buildings which are embellished with elegant stone portals.

There are many possible visits beginning with neighbouring Nova Siri, Valsinni, the ruins of Eraclea and the Pollino National Park territory.

The neighbouring Jonic Coast also allows moments of relax on its beaches which are equipped for seaside tourism.
