The Pollino National Park is part of Lamezia Terme’s area . This is where wonderful forests and windy plateaux makes it ideal for hiking. Lamezia is known for its majestic landscapes. The city lies between the cliffs of the Tyrrenhian coast and the sand dunes of the Ionic coast – just to the south of the Sila, a sort of Alpine spot in the heart of the Mediterranean.
If architercture is also your interest, you have to go and see The Malta Bastion. This majestic watchtower was built in 1550 to serve the Knights of Malta and it is considered the symbol of the town. There are several tower-ruins in the area but this is one of the most impressive and well-preserved of them all. Saint Pacrazio’s church also is very beautiful, with its Mattia Preti paintings, statues and restored frescoes.
