A blue-eyed nymph transformed into a sea monster because of the envy of the sorceress Circe and finally petrified in rock, from which Skylla or Skyllaion (rock in greek); the legend of Scilla is lost in the mists of time and relives through the words of Homer and Ovid.
The charm of these stories has maintened itself in this small village of Calabria, overlooking the Straits of Messina, attracting a variety of artists in every age. Even today, many local fishermen are available for excursions among the Caves in which they will accompany you with fascinating stories about these places. We recommend a walk on the beaches of Marina Grande and Chianalea. To separete these two beaches there are the historical village and the Scilla Castle of Ruffo, perched on the headland, which allows a beautiful view of the clear sea and the surrounding landscape.
