Amantea is a beautiful and interesting town and also a popular seaside resort. It is of extremely ancient origin: its name derives from the Latin Amantia, but the town probably existed much before Roman times.
Amantea was devastated by the Saracens and played an important role in the war between the Aragonese and the Angevins. It was loyal to the Bourbon dynasty and was the centre of the Calabrian uprising against the French, by whom it was sieged and captured through starvation in 1806.
Amantea is composed of one part on the plain along the coast, set among luxuriant citrus orchards and, another older part lying up on a hill at the entrance to the Catocastro gorge.
