Morano Calabro is a very distinguished old Roman town in northern Calabria on the border with the Pollino National Park.
At the highest point of town you will find the castle from 1490 with the very beautiful corner towers. The city also has fine examples of church architecture, visiting sites such as San Bernardino, which dates back to the 1400s. Patron saint San Bernardino is celebrated also with a religious celebration every year on 20 May. Morano's well-preserved historic center and distinctive profile has given the city a place on the list of Italy's most beautiful Medieval towns, I borghi più belli d'Italia .
From that period dates the first fortress on the summit of the hills, extended in the 9th century with a real castle, of which today only remain scenographic ruins. The late Medieval layout, with a compact fabric of houses and a labyrinth of stairs, winding streets, in part carved in rock, remains.
