Calabria is overflowing with hidden gems and Diamante is no exception.
Diamante (diamonds in English), is the perfect name for this charming fishing village on Calabria’s west coast. It is home to crystal sparkling waters, breathtaking views of the Riviera dei Cedri and Calabria’s famously hot peperoncini (chili peppers). But, that’s not all!
As you walk the narrow weaving streets of Diamante’s historical center, you will be instantly drawn to the over 150 beautifully hand-painted murals gracing the walls of this seaside village. In 1981, painters unleashed their artistic talents using the walls as blank canvases as part of an initiative created by painter Nani Razzetti and the Mayor of Diamante at the time.
Since then, more murals have been painted making Diamante’s historical center an intriguing and ever-changing outdoor art exhibit.
Whether you like irresistible beaches, impressive cuisine or beautiful art; Diamante is the perfect fit for everyone!
