Crotone (Calabria)

Crotone is a city and comune in Calabria. Founded c. 710 BC as the Achaean colony of Kroton, it was known as Cotrone from the Middle Ages until 1928, when its name was changed to the current one. In 1992, it became the capital of the newly established Province of Crotone. Not to miss is the Castle of Charles V: it houses the Town Museum, with findings excavated in the ancient site of Kroton. Notable are also the remnants of the walls, of the same century, and of various watchtowers. The Cathedral, originally from the 9th to 11th centuries, but largely rebuilt, has a neo-classical façade, while the interior has a nave with two aisles, with Baroque decorations. Crotone also hosts a national archaeological museum, a municipal museum, a municipal art gallery, and a provincial museum of contemporary art, as well as the Antiquarium di Torre Nao.
