Comune di Santa Cristina d’Aspromonte
Located on a hillock overlooking torrents Musa, Serra Vecchia and Lagò on the Northern side of Aspromonte, Santa Cristina was destroyed by the infamous earthquake of February 5th, 1783 ad later rebuilt in the district of St. Lorenzo della Scoffetta by a group of survivors. The rather unique and unspoiled natural landscape around this town is dominated by an expanse of tall ancient olive trees, giving way to rows of pines, white firs and beech trees. Among the most interesting sights are the Church of Saint Nicholas from Mira, the Church of the Assumption, the Longo Palace and the Clock Tower.
Santa Cristina d’Aspromonte is also home to many religious traditions; the holiday events calendar of this town includes theatrical performances and popular games for the younger generations, as well as concerts and outdoor film screenings in the main square in the evening.
