MaierÓ is a pleasant little town characterised by harmonious, terraced houses. MaierÓ owes its origins to the phenomenon known as Norman fortification, dating back to the 11th century. The ancient Byzantine hamlet of M'arÓ was conquered by Guiscardo, creating a barony which then became a dukedom. The most important monument of MaierÓ is the Palazzo Ducale which, in the summer months, houses the various works of Calabrian artists, and which has recently also become the location for the Museum of Chilli Peppers.
A mention should also be made about the mother church, dedicated to Santa Maria del Piano which preserves frescoes from the Renaissance. Other churches, such as that of Santa Maria del Casale, have Byzantine or Italo-Greek origins. Also worthy of note is the famous monastery of S. Pietro in Carbonara, of Italo-Greek origins. The gastronomy of MaierÓ mirrors the typical cuisine of the hillside immediately up against the Riviera dei Cedri. Home made pasta is typical, generally dressed with meat sauces made from goat or pork.
MaierÓ is made even more charming by the large choice of accommodation facilities on offer.
