Tropea: Holiday apartments and Bed & Breakfast

Tropea is enthroned majestically above the sea. The history-laden town was founded – as legend has it – by the ancient hero Hercules.

Tropea, the lovelyheart of Calabria - enjoy our comfy Bed and Breakfast and holiday apartments

From the sea, you have got the most spectacular view of Tropea: a stretch of white sand, above which rock faces rise up vertically and melt into the walls of the old palazzi.

Enjoy picture-postcard views from the completely intact Old Town towards the turquoise blue sea and the pilgrimage church of Santa Maria dell’Isola, Tropea’s landmark.

Walk to the wide sandy beaches on both sides of the Isola and enjoy untainted bathing pleasure in the clean, crystal clear water of the sea. No wonder Tropea is a popular holiday resort! 

Stay at Tropea: We know the best B&B´s!

Visible from afar, the pilgrimage church of Santa Maria dell’Isola rises on an isolated sandstone rock outside the town.

Up to the time the Normans arrived, Greek-Orthodox Basilian monks lived as hermits on the island. The island and the church then passed into the ownership of the Benedictines and they are still part of the diocese of Montecassino today.  

The nobly structured façade was erected at the beginning of the 20th century, after its medieval structures had gradually been destroyed by wars. 

On the upper floors, there is a small museum and from the roof terrace you step into a lovingly designed garden which offers fantastic views. 


The Old Town of Tropea: lovely holiday apartments and B&B´s are waiting for you

The heart of the Old Town beats at Piazza Ercole. At Sedile Port’Ercole, the former seat of the nobility, committed members of Pro Loco pass out information nowadays. The chairman’s father is the well-known painter Albino Lorenzo.  

Following Corso Vittorio Emanuele, you arrive at a breathtaking Belvedere. 

Alleys branching off to either side invite you to stroll around, passing noble palaces and proud upper class townhouses.  

Amongst the town’s numerous churches worth visiting, it is the cathedral dating back to the 12th/13th century that stands out. Thanks to comprehensive works of restoration, the church has regained its medieval structure.  

A Gothic portal takes you into the austere pier basilica, which is devoid of any Baroque elements.
