Historical building

Palazzo del Capo (o De Aloe)

Via Cristoforo Colombo, Bonifati, (Cosenza)

Summer residence of the family that owns it for over two centuries, has been opened to the public in 1991 after a careful restoration work. The building occupies the promontory of Capo Bonifati, westernmost point of Tyrrhenian coast. A tower of sighting of Spanish period (sixteenth century) it is the fulcrum, testifying to periods in which the area was plagued by pirate attacks, but also to peaceful trade. A large garden, protected by a sturdy wall that overlooks the sea, and a park of sixteen thousand square meters complete the ensemble recognized as "Heritage of Artistic and Historical Interest" in 1985.
