ALBI

Not too far from Taverna is where one will come across Albi, a city with which it shares its history. It is situated on the edges of the Sila National Park.

History

The settlement began around the period of battles between the Angioinians and Aragonese (XV century) after the destruction of neighbouring Taverna. Its inhabitants founded Albi on land belonging to Agostino Albio, from which its name derives.

The village followed the history of Taverna for centuries, from which it was freed only during 1806 when it became an autonomous municipality.

A visit to the City

The Saints Pietro and Paolo Church preserves a sculpture in its interior, depicting the Madonna with Child by Bottone (1574) and a painting of the Madonna with Child between Saints Girolamo and Sebastiano.
The Santa Maria delle Grazie or dell'Oliveto Church dominates the area, though sadly in a state of abandonment.

The ruins of the Pèsaca Abbey is worth a visit. It dates back to the X century and is the work of Basilian monks.

For its geographic position, Albi is an ideal base to enjoy naturalistic excursions to the Sila National Park.
