The beauty of Calabria.
I'm interested in culture and tradition of Italy. For me Calabria is the most beautiful region of Italy. Calabria is a region in Southern Italy. This area forms "toe" of the Italian Peninsula. The capital of city is Catanzaro. The climate of Calabria is influenced by the mountains and seas- Tyrhennian and Ionian. Calabria has the cleanest air in Europe. In my opinion this region of Italy is a magic land of abundance, which is distinguished by stony coasts and azure, pure water.
History, art and traditions are very rich and interesting, that attracts many tourists who want to visit this magic place. In winter some mountain locations are occupied by a lot of visitors from Italy and also from other countries. The people in Calabria cultivate olives, citrus fruits and is widespread breeding of cattle and sheep. The monuments very interesting are The Cattolica di Stilo and The Cathedral of Saint Mary of the Assumption.
The cuisine of Calabria is tipical southern Italian Mediterranean cuisine- different kinds of meat (pork, lamb), vegetables and the pasta is very important dish. Local specialties are Caciocavallo Cheese, Frittuli, Curcuci (fried pork), Lagane e Cicciari (pasta dish) and local desserts include baked biscuits and honey-sweetened pastries Cudduraci. Especially I love a traditional dish of Calabria- the meatballs 'alla mammolese' prepared of pork, cheese and chili.
I encourage everyone to visit this wonderful region of Italy!
