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
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
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
