The great Mediterranean and European civilizations have influenced the history of Santa Severina, each leaving traces, finds and monuments, assets that are everyone’s heritage.
Today it is difficult to find a place where there is such a concentration of artistic, monumental and cultural assets together with a historic center capable of provoking strong emotions. Santa Severina is one of the most beautiful villages in Italy. Its castle houses the remains of a byzantine church and a necropolis from the same historical period, which can be visited, as well as the Baptistery and the Cathedral.
