SAN DEMETRIO CORONE

San Demetrio Corone is located in a panoramic position on the Northern slopes of the Sila National Park, which looks over the Valle del Crati.

History

Originally, the centre was known only by the name of Sandemitre, but with the arrival of a community of Albanese refugees, coming from Coron (end of XV century, in flight from Turkish persecution, its name was completed and became San Demetrio Corone.

Over time, San Demetrio Corone acquired more and more importance for the Albanese community of Calabria, so much so, that in 1794 it became the seat of an Italo-Albanese College.

A visit to the City

The main monument in San Demetrio Corone, definitely one of the most important in the region, is the S. Adriano Church (‘XI century). It preserves interesting architectonic elements in its interior, dating back to the Norman era; among which we would like to point out the mosaic flooring.

One can also visit the San Nilo Grotto on its territory, which contains frescoes, and is a place of quiet prayer to San Nilo of Rossano (X century).

It is easy to reach the Sila National Park from San Demetrio Corone, as well as some important centres like Acri, Luzzi and Corigliano.
