A holiday in Reggio Calabria
Reggio Calabria’s appearance is modern, with regular urban layout, low-rise buildings and wide, straight, checkerboard streets: this is due to reconstruction following the disastrous earthquake that razed it in 1908. The city lives intensely on its relationship with the sea; it is one of Calabria’s major ports and connects the Aeolian Islands thanks to the Liberty Lines company. The city owes its economy in beach and art tourism; the famous “Riace Bronzes,” magnificent bronze statues on a larger-than-life scale, alone are worth the trip here.
The city of the Riace Bronzes
Reggio Calabria’s appeal still appears to be linked to that of Magna Graecia and its later alliance with Rome that made it a Roman municipium. Christian city was a strategic base for first the Byzantine empire and then the later Norman period. Drastically damaged by the severe earthquakes of 1562 and 1783, it was with the Kingdom of Naples and the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies that the city underwent important and rapid processes of modernization and development.
Reggio Calabria with the richness of its cultural heritage leaves one breathless. The Falcomatà promenade, a true paradise to be discovered at any hour of the day or night, the National Archaeological Museum of Reggio Calabria, home of the Riace Bronzes, and the Aragonese Castle, a symbol of a fortified city from the Byzantine era that has undergone changes during the following centuries, but without losing its charm, are just some of the wonders you can see when visiting Reggio Calabria.
