Corigliano majestically stands on a small hill surrounded by green olive and colourful citron groves. South, it is protected by the imposing Sila massif and, east, it overlooks the turquoise water of the Ionian Sea.

Among the historical and artistic monuments that adorn Corigliano, the Castello Ducale (Ducal Castle) has an outstanding position, recently restored to its former glory.

The area has a Mediterranean climate with a mild temperature all year round and very hot days in summer.

In the past, Corignano was at the centre of historical events of great importance and is the birthplace of Charles III, King of Naples who reigned toward the end of the XII century. Among the historical and artistic monuments that adorn Corigliano, the Ducal Castle has an outstanding position. The 1073 fortified building was recently restored to its former glory and it has now become a must-see place for visitors. A walk in the old town through narrow streets, rural houses and ancient sacred places is a fascinating and intense experience, as well as the archaeological itineraries concerning the historical connections to the ancient Sybaris.
