This historic area is grossly overlooked and it appeared that no-one cared about it. There are great possibilities with such interesting old buildings and narrow streets however many buildings are in a shocking state of repair including the exterior of the cathedral. Just down from the cathedral are ancient ruins which at some stage were roofed to protect them however vandals have had a field day and the area is ill kept and dirty with garbage everywhere. Do Calabrians have no pride? Drive into neighbouring Apulia and the contrast is immediate.
