This photo was taken in a small town in Calabria: FILADELFIA. From here you can admire the Gulf of Sant’eufemia. In ancient times the Gulf of Lamezia was called Sinus Lametinus, Napitinus, Hipponiates and Taerineus (from the Greek city of Terina). Its position in the Mediterranean combined with the fact that together with the Gulf of Squillace draws the narrowest isthmus in Europe, it has assigned a very important role in history so much to be narrated by Homer (the land of the Feaci of the Odyssey) , in fact a a stretch of coast overlooking the gulf is known as the coast of the Feacis, and was also the object of the landing of the English in 1806 to face the French in the battle of Maida. The Gulf of Sant'Eufemia is located on the Calabrian Tyrrhenian coast, extending from Campora San Giovanni (a hamlet of Amantea in the province of Cosenza) to Capo Vaticano (a hamlet of Ricadi in the province of Vibo Valentia). This town is 700 meters above sea level .
