Cetraro is positioned on a rocky spur that dominates the entire coast, from which you can admire beautiful views. The town has very ancient origins and takes its name from the cultivation of cedars practiced in all the surrounding countryside. City of ancient maritime traditions , it sees all its economy revolving around the port, where you can take a relaxing walk crossing the walkway over the water. For compliance with the environmental sustainability criteria, it was awarded the 2018 Blue Flag for tourist landings. To embellish the walls, mosaics, sculptures and works by international sculptors made with Grisolia stones and by the boys of the Art Institute

The historic center is the custodian of many monuments that tell of its past: the Piazza del Popolo with the Fountain of Neptune dating back to the end of the 1800s and the Palazzo del Trono from 1492, the Church of S. Maria delle Grazie , next to the Convent, and the Capuchin Church. At the end of the Corso, on the other hand, the Chiesa Matrice and the ancient bell tower dating back to 1500. Along Via Regina Elena you arrive at the oldest district of the town, inhabited since 600 by sailors and fishermen , where boats and tools were built for the Neapolitan Royal Navy .

The even more suggestive part is the Rizzi cliff , where the rock called 'Lion's head' dominates because of its shape. The silhouette stands out immediately and in the rock it seems to see a lion's head  carved. On the cliff, one of the towers built in the sixteenth century to defend the Kingdom of Naples from Turkish invasions, the Torre di Rienzo . The whole coast is an alternation of beaches and rocks, including the Grotta di Rizzo and the Grotta delle Tre Colonne
