Castiglione di Paludi
In 2016 the Archaeological Park of Castiglione di Paludi finally opened its doors to the public. The completion of this project was made possible thanks to the financial support obtained through the Piani Operativi Regionali (POR) Calabria 2007/13, Obiettivo operativo 5.2.1 DGR 110/2011. The first phase of the archaeological area’s restoration was completed thanks to Progetto Calabria 2000-2006.
The archaeological site of Castiglione di Paludi occupies a hill composed of two largely flat areas connected by a central saddle, covering a total surface of approximately 40 hectares. The northern plateau (maximum altitude 296 meters asl) overlooks the coast while the southern plateau (334 m asl) extends towards the village of Paludi and the mountainous inland area.
The Polyfunctional Cultural Center
The funding provided by POR Calabria 2007/2013 enabled the opening of the Polyfunctional Cultural Center in Paludi, right on the street that leads to the archeological park of Castiglione. An important introductory stop on any visit to the park, the center was also created to host various kinds of events such as conferences, concerts, exhibitions, commercial expositions, video projections, etc...
