SPEZZANO DELLA SILA

Situated on the western margins of the territory which forms part of the Sila National Park, is where one will find Spezzano della Sila in a beautiful panoramic position in the Cosenza valley.

History

It seems that its name derives from the Latin Spetius, with probable reference to a personal foundation.
The suburb's origins dates back to the era of Saracen raids along the Tyrrhenian coast (IX century) which induced its inhabitants to take refuge in safer inland places.

In the XV century, San Francesco of Paola arrived here in pilgrimage and founded a convent; also physically taking part in its construction.

In 1644, Spezzano della Sila was acquired by the Grand duke of Tuscany.

A visit to the City

The following churches in Spezzano della Sila are noteworthy: the San Biagio Parochial and the San Pietro Church. Both preserve works and wooden statues dating back to the '500s.

One can also visit the 15th century San Francesco of Paola Convent which is situated in an elevated position in regard to the suburb, and which hosts canvases from the '700s.

In neighbouring Spezzano Piccolo, one can admire the Assunta Parochial with its beautiful clock tower and 17th century canvases in its interior.
