Longobucco is located on the north side of the Sila at 30 Km from Mirto Crosia and 40 from Camigliatello on the route of Silana of Rossano. According to some scholars Longobucco dates back to the time of Magna Grecia, so much to identify Longobucco in the ancient city of Temesa. The territory of Longobucco was rich in mineral wells, among which the primeval silver galena was extracted and worked by the Siberians, Crotonians and Romans for the making their own coins. Next to the town is the historical route "La Via delle Miniere". Walking along the trail you can admire the silver mine quarries, and photoboards illustrate the extraction and processing of the silver galena. Abbot Gioacchino da Fiore goes to Longobucco to make two silver chalets on designs drawn up by him with biblical scenes.
