La Madonna dormiente è il pezzo forte di questa cattedrale che comunque è meravigliosa; anche il mosaico alle spalle dell'altare è veramente meraviglioso.

Church well kept. Passing on Sunday I was able to attend a piece of the mass, where there is a very good choir.

Beautiful cathedral with an important facade and interesting portal. Very nice interior. It is located in the historic center of Squillace which is one of the most beautiful and scenic villages in the province of Catanzaro and the whole of Calabria.

The cathedral combines as an attractive tourist destination when visiting Squillace with the long and historically significant development of the city and region. From the square in front of the cathedral, the fantastic urban structure and the landscape, integrated architecture and dimensions, are revealed. Here, in the context of further discoveries in Squillace, history can be experienced. The interior has conveyed the spirit of religious identity and is entirely appropriate to the character of the cathedral's significance.

Duino Castle

Duino Castle was built by the Wallsee family in 1389 on the cliffs overlooking the Gulf of Trieste. It replaced an older castle from the 11th century. Over time, the Wallsee family disappeared and the castle, after having been used as a prison, became the residence of the Luogar and Hofer.

At the end of the 19th century it became the property of Prince Alexander von Thurn und Taxis from the Czech branch of the House of Thurn and Taxis. It remains with the family to this day with his great-grandson Prince Carlo Alessandro della Torre e Tasso, Duke of Castel Duino the current owner. The castle has been opened to the public as a museum and park.
