Places

Briatico-Zambrone
After about three Kilometres from Tropea you come to the St. Irene’s Bay, surrounded by magnificent scenery, with a clear sea and rocks outcrops that lend it a picturesque air. Two steeply-descending roads on the right lead down to the bay, which offers little room for parking. The beach is partly sandy, with shingle along the sea-shore. Thirty metres away from the beach, within swimming distance, is the “ ‘A GALERA” (prison) outcrop, which, with its numerous intercommunicating cell-like caves, resembles an enormous whale or submarine to those who approach it, by sea, from Tropea. According to legend, in the times when the caves were used as prison cells – from which they derive their name- a king once imprisoned his daughter for having refused her consent to an arranged marriage. Going to the SS. 522 and heading towards Zambrone Marina, you come to a road on the left a few metres after the turning for Zungri. This road leads to a sandy beach, and a sea-front with space for parking. In the centre of Zambrone there is a large amphitheatre where many cultural events are organised.

Sights:
the Rocchetta, the Torre Sant’Irene, the Centre of Town, the Region Archaeological “Punta Safň”, the rest of the “Tonnare”.
