Squillace is an ancient seaside town in the Province of Catanzaro, situated on the east coast of Calabria, on the shores of an extensive bay, the Gulf of Squillace which indents the coast of Calabria on the east, as deeply as that of the Gulf of Saint Eufemia on the west, with a comparatively narrow isthmus between them.

The name Squillace derives from the ancient city of Scylletium, the principal ruins of which are located in the nearby commune of Borgia. The modern town is known today as one of Italy's most important archaeological sites as well as a popular resort. Production of highly prized terra cotta has been an important part the local economy for centuries; Cassiodorus' writings make several mentions of it. Squillace is the home of the pignatari style of ceramic artistry. The name is derived from the Italian word pignata, an earthenware container used for cooking beans over an open fire.


At one time this city was very much the holiday playground for the Northern Italians exclusively, however now the secret is out and Soverato is set to become more and more popular with visitors from across Europe. Italians have always flocked here for the fine sandy beaches and blue green waters. The authentic old town, with its picturesque streets has always played a part in the local tourism economy. There are many traditional restaurants serving the most delicious gourmet food for you to discover.

 As this attractive area expands its tourism target market, we too have a chance to enjoy the lifestyle and take advantage of the exciting opportunities available when looking to invest in Calabria.


Soverato offers a wide variety of sugar white sandy beaches where you can stretch out, soak up the sun and forget your worries. With the option of the popular busy stretches or more private secluded beaches off the beaten track, there is something for everyone.


The most popular market in Calabria opens here at the end of every month, the ideal place to find treasures at bargain prices.

For fresh local produce, head to the Friday food market on piazza Maria Ausiliatrice and for Italian style try the elegant designer shops and jewellers in the pedestrian precinct overlooking the gorgeous gulf of Squillace.


Each day the fishermen arrive with their boats to offload their catches at the fish market near the boardwalk in Soverato, which means you can look forward to finding fresh seafood on the menu at all the local bars and restaurants as well as spicy Calabria specialities and fine local wines.


In the summer it’s all happening along the popular boardwalk where people come to Soverato each evening from surrounding towns and villages to eat, drink and dance to the early hours in its dozens and dozens of bars and clubs.


When you’re tired of the beach and crave a little culture, there are some fascinating archaeological sites nearby including an old olive mill, a Norman church, La Roccelletta and an ancient necropolis.


This town rises on a rock and is split into two parts by the steep Fiumarella valley, the two sections being connected by a huge concrete steel bridge (the Viadotto Morandi ), among the highest in Europe, built in 1960 to the design of architect Riccardo Morandi .

The beach town Catanzaro Lido, located about 5 kilo meters south, has a wide promenade and a harbour for small fishing and pleasure boats.

The old town was built over three hills (St. Trifone or St. Rocco Hill; Episcopate's Hill; St. John's Hill) in Byzantine times. Catanzaro was since the 11th century the lace capital of the world with a large silkworm breeding, it produced all the laces and linens used in the Vatican and supplied merchants that came from all over Europe to buy the silk in the port of Reggio Calabria soon before Pentecost day.
