The beaches in the Riviera dei Cedri is that part of the Calabrian Tyrrhenian coast that extends from Paola to Tortora for a total of about 80 kilometers.
Its name is derived from the cultivation of the cedar that fill the surrounding valleys and hills. This citrus, as defined in the Bible, the fruit of the most beautiful tree, needs a mild and temperate climate, poorly ventilated.

The Madonna del Pettoruto is a sanctuary that rises in a basin of the Esaro valley, on the Tyrrhenian side of the Pollino.
This pilgrimage site is visited every year in September by pilgrims who arrive on foot.
The origins of the sanctuary are distant in time, it seems that the first niche was erected in 1274.
The appellative petruto, that is petroso, refers to the whole mountainous area that surrounds the sanctuary.
A legend about its origin tells that a man named Nicola Mairo, originally from nearby Altomonte, unjustly accused of murder and took refuge on the mountain where the sanctuary stands today to escape capture, would have had a mystical vision.
Here he would have carved, during his hiding, the image of the Madonna and Child on a tufaceous rock; in 1449 the Mairo was cleared of all charges.
Tradition has it that in the early 1600s a deaf and mute shepherd boy heard his name and saw the Madonna with Child in her arms who urged him to found the church.
The sanctuary was built by the will of Bishop Felice Greco, bishop of San Marco Argentano and Bisignano from 1824 to 1840, subsequently elevated to a minor basilica by Pope John Paul II in 1979
Also relevant is the link with the Madonna del Pettoruto that devotees around the world have.
In San Isidro, Argentina, there is a community in honor of the Madonna del Pettoruto.
Families who emigrated from San Sosti and settled in Argentina have continued to practice the cult by reproducing the same anniversaries.
Other communities in Canada and the United States have brought with them the faith towards Our Lady and the Sansostesi traditions.
I also discovered that the city of Bra, in the Cuneo area, is twinned with the municipality of San Sosti. This is because many young San Sosti migrated to Piedmont in search of work and in Bra there is a large community of San Sosti origin.
Come and visit the Sanctuary of the Madonna del Pettoruto, it will be a unique opportunity.
Here are the 15 Blue Flags in Calabria which in this summer season will be the protagonists of the most beautiful beaches.
Calabria confirms itself as a dream destination, for its crystalline sea and paradisiacal beaches.
This year, as many as 15 Calabrian towns can boast the coveted title of “Blue Flag 2021”.
The prestigious international recognition assigned by the Fee (Foundation for Environmental Education) to beaches certified for the environmental quality not only of their waters,
but also for the services, green spaces, as well as the parameters of livability and sustainability for tourists.
Each province has its own seaside resorts with the best services and crystal clear waters,
one of the most beautiful of the 15 blue flags in Calabria
Tortora, Praia a Mare, San Nicola Arcella, Santa Maria del Cedro, Diamante, Roseto Capo Spulico, Trebisacce, Villapiana are the stages that we will see from time to time in time on the channel
In the province of Reggio Calabria and Catanzaro there are 2 locations each: Siderno and Roccella Jonica in the first and Soverato and Sellia marina in the second. In the province of Vibo valentia there is only Tropea.
Melissa and Cirò marina are the only two stops in the province of Crotone
Amazing kalabria has been invited by a television truope that will film all the locations. On this occasion we will have the opportunity to visit the most organized and cleanest beaches of the Calabrian coasts from north to south, from east to west.
We start with Soverato and Sellia Marina, then Tropea and the others to follow. A tour that will run until the end of August. Follow me on the youtube channel to not miss the episodes.
Finally in the headlines for what we really are: an area rich in resources, industrious communities, good practices in the private sector as well as in the governance of public affairs.
A positive balance that records an increase of one unit compared to the 14 beaches awarded in 2020.
An applause goes to all the Mayors of the municipalities of the 15 blue flags in Calabria for all the initiatives undertaken with skill and perseverance and for the results obtained.
The common goal is to promote the value of the territory; plan shared, sustainable and integrated development; enhance skills, optimize energy and resources to attract funding and implement concrete interventions.
What I have been doing personally for several years with the youtube channel and with this blog.
