Cirò
 
The village of Cirò rises on the northern part of the hill where the rural settlement of Ypsicron was once developed. The Oenotrians had discovered the art and technique of vine growing that have been passed on throughout the generations.
Under the Carafa family government, Cirò was turned into a fortress; the Sabatini and the Carafa castles were built in the 15th and 16th centuries.
At the end of the 16th century, the towers Torre di Madonna di Mare and Torre Nuova were erected.
A large number of families from Cirò and other surrounding villages started moving towards the coast by the end of the 19th century, where Cirò Marina is situated today.
Cirò Marina is a small town with 15,000 inhabitants by the Ionian Sea and protected by the Sila mountains.
Cirò is a land of wine, culture, and hospitality.
