Ghost villages

Village of Pentedattilo (municipaly of Melito Porto Salvo)

One of the most characteristic and evocative abandoned villages in Calabria, located close to Aspromonte and in the heart of the Grecanica area of Calabria, Pentedattilo rises perched on the cliff of Mount Calvario, whose characteristic shape resembles that of a cyclopean hand with five fingers and from which it derives its name. Pentedattilo is part of the municipal territory of Motta San Giovanni (RC). The evocative walk through the silent streets of the ancient 'ghost village' will allow visitors to admire, among other things: the ruins of the ancient castle and interesting sacred buildings, the pinnacle of the mountain, on which the village rests, resembling the thumb of the hand.
