Gerace: the enchanting medieval town of Calabria's Ionic coast

Gerace dominates the Valley of Locride. It is believed that Gerace (from the Greek ierax, sparrow hawk) was founded by the Saracens. An important Byzantine citadel, Gerace was later to become stronghold of the Normans. Numerous churches, monuments, and palazzi testify to the different dominations.

Among the many interesting places to visit in Gerace, there is the Cathedral of 1045, the 13th century Church of San Francesco, and the remains of an ancient Norman castle. In the Borgo Vecchio, or old town, one can still see the ancient dwellings dug out of the tufa, some of which originating from caves inhabited since Neolithic times.

From Belvedere delle Bombarde, the walkway along the old perimeter walls of the town, a fabulous view of the countryside which separates Gerace from the sea can be admired, an on towards a stretch of Calabria's Ionic coast characterised by seemingly interminable beaches lapped by crystal clear waters.

Within the archaeological park of Locri Epizefri one finds the remains of the Centocamere the town's ancient commercial district, the Marasà temple, the Necropolis, and the Greek-Roman theatre. The National museum houses a vast number of exhibits, including a collection of ancient coins and vases found in the area.
