We are in the 14th century when the Angevin population climbed to the top and built the magnificent open-air theatre, which is home to international events in summer, and the Church of Santa Maria della Consolazione. This is how a 14th century art island was born in Calabria. It is written in the history books as well as on the medieval stones of the buildings and narrow lanes of Altomonte. Here you can try the figs of Cosenza and buy the delicious red onion of Tropea for all your recipes back home.
