The Village

One of the most beautiful towns in Calabria being a few hundred meters from its marina. The village is accessible from several points but one of main entrances is “ Porta Pia”. The first core of the historic center was built as a fortified strategic place during Byzantine period between the ninth and tenth centuries. The mighty walls of the town were fortified when the town was under the rule of the  Ruffo’s family feud . The full length of the perimeter is about a mile interspersed with eight towers.

It became the county in Norman times (Xlcentury) and later Principality (1565), Decatur was subject to various lordships. We alternated the Ruffo, the Riario, the Sanseverino, Coppola, the Borgia, and ultimately (1505) Spinelli, Principles of Decatur in 1565, who held it until the abolition of feudalism (1806). In 1437, while under the dominion of Ruffo, Decatur was elevated to a bishopric, and still retains that title today.
