St. Mary of the Lauro's Sanctuary
Foto Scalea: St. Mary of the Lauro's Sanctuary
The Sanctuary, built in the last century, features a sober white facade with pilaster strips (little columns). The Legend tells that it was built for some sailors' will that, once caught in a storm, prayed the Madonna of Lauro to save their lives. They promised to build a temple in her honor where they landed. And so they did in Scalea.

Talao Tower

The characteristic tower was built in sixteenth century on an island called Talao which, lately, adjoined the mainland due to the flood-tide. Its massive structure shows it was built for defensive purposes. During time, its function changed and it was setting of intellectual and studies meetings. It is a must-see destination for the local tourists.
