San Lucido is a mix of ancient and modern with the historical centre perched on a rocky prominence supported by La Rotonda sul Mare, which is commonly called the Panoramica from where you can see the spectacular coastline: from U Gafiu to the Ruffo Castle: this particular structure is a noticeable landmark for San Lucido.
U Gafiu is one of the few structures that remains, built from the ancient Rocca Nicetina. Sitting in the main piazza the bar with the same name is where you can enjoy a delicious gelato overlooking the beautiful coastline.
Among the places of interest to see is the Church of the Pietà, which is the oldest place of worship in San Lucido, a small façade nestled between 2 buildings with a small bell tower.
Overlooking the town is the Monastery of Santa Maria del Monte Persano. It was built, around the 11th century, by Basilian monks. In 1893, after a long period of abandonment, the local inhabitants retuned to the church on the feast of Santa Maria del Monte Persano: the first Sunday of September. Currently, the monastery is in the state of ruin, but it is possible to see details of ancient fireplaces, and the stones for the poles that close the large windows and many other details.
Meander through the narrow streets and there are also many local amenities; café bars, shops, gelateria, restaurants that blend with the more modern grocery stores, pharmacy etc.
Along the beach front are a number of lidos and beach bars, in particular the Scoglio, a rocky area with crystal clear sea, an ideal location for snorkelling!
The towns of Amantea and Paola are a 15-minute drive in each direction and as well as offering year-round facilities and activities host a number of festivals and markets. They also offer a variety of shops, boutiques, supermarkets, restaurants and bars. San Lucido is also conveniently positioned to explore many other traditional villages, such as Guardia Piemontese, Fiumefreddo, Scilla, and more. You take advantage of seasonal activities such as scuba diving at nearby Belmonte Calabro, kite surfing at Gizzeria, rafting at Scalea to name but a few.
