What to see in Tropea
Lying on an imposing tuff rock that gives it its characteristic white amber colour, Tropea is built on terraces from which to enjoy the splendid coastal panorama. The old town centre winds its way through narrow streets and small squares, punctuated by frequent craft boutiques and delicatessen shops.
Reaching Piazza Duomo you can visit the beautiful Norman Cathedral. It is not, however, the only important religious building, as it certainly deserves a visit to the beautiful Santa Maria dell'Isola, which stands on a majestic rock.
