ROSETO CAPO SPULICO

Roseto Capo Spulico is situated on the confines of the territory forming part of Basilicata along the Jonic coasts, not too distant from the Pollino National Park.

History

The centre sprung up during the Medieval era (X century) and with the arrival of the Normans, took on a particular territorial importance by becoming the border between the property of Robert Guiscard and his brother, Ruggero (end of the XI century). From this period, it’s certain that the first garrison was constructed to preside over the Jonic coasts.

Under the Swabians (1196-1269), construction began of the Frederican Castle (1220-69), which today still exists in a good state of preservation.

At the end of the XX century, the tourism industry began in Roseto, thanks to the presence of a beautiful marina with crystal clear water.

A visit to the City

The princely attraction of Roseto Capo Spulico is clearly its Castle, encircled by town walls containing characteristic towers and merlons.

One can visit the S. Maria della Consolazione Church and the Spúlico Tower, a defensive garrison looking out over the coastal area.

There are numerous possible visits to neighbouring Calabrian centres: Amendolara, Rocca Imperiale, Oriolo. And also to centres in Basilicata: Tursi, Rotondella, Policoro.

One will find the Pollino National Park only a few kilometres away from the territory.
