The old village lies on a scenic place. Because of people needed to move, there is no more permanent living people here. But some artists and some shops with local products are coming here, especially with bergamot products. Very interesting, nice and tastfull

This village, perched high among the rocks, is like a ghost town but is so serene and beautiful. The views from here are spectacular and well worth the effort to get there. There are a few little craft shops, a bar and the best postcards we found in the area!

Pentedattilo is a mysterious place with empty old houses and streets that are impressive when you reach there. Famous due to the 5 fingers mountain behind the city, has a fascinating and phantasmagorical beauty, believe it or not!

This place was a gem that was totally unexpected! Very fascinating just to walk around and take in the ruins, surrounding views and how the whole thing was built against the rocks there. Do be prepared to walk alot and, depending on how adventurous you are, be prepared to do abit of climbing. I was definitely panting when I traversed... More

This small abounded village,Pentedattilo,(from the greek words penta + daktylos = five fingers), it can be a set for Hollywood movies.Unfortunately some parts of the mountain collapsed and it has no more all five "fingers", but is still a fascinating place and full of mystery, one of the most characteristic towns in Calabria region. The landscape and colors are amazing,... More

This is definitely a must see. Impressive view. great artistic pictures. Make sure you drive to the beach afterwards and enjoy the drive on the road parallel to the sea.
