Santa Maria del Cedro is located on the Northern Tyrrhenian coast in the province of Cosenza, between Diamante and Scalea in a beautiful area of Calabria that includes mountainous areas immediately adjacent to the stretch of coastline known as the Riviera dei Cedri (Citron Coast). Santa Maria del Cedro lies at the foot of a green valley of citrus and olive groves that perfume the air with an intense and unique scent. The origins of the name "Santa Maria del Cedro", enshrined in 1968 with a decree of the President of the Republic, are clearly linked to the cultivation from ancient times of citrus fruits that cover the area in green with vast citrus groves. The cultivation of citrus fruit is so important that every year during the summer period, a large number of Jewish priests arrive to this location to select and gather in person the purest citrus fruits to send to Jewish communities scattered throughout the world to celebrate the "Sukkot"; the Feast of Tabernacles, which is one of the most important religious Jewish events.
