"Il Comignolo" was born from the will to let tourists live the magic and exclusive atmosphere

"Il Comignolo" was born from the will to let tourists live the magic and exclusive atmosphere of such territory, according different tastes and needs, but over the mass expenditure, faithful to a "slow" lifestyle. We're sure that slowness is the main ingredient to catch the sense of a trip in this side of Calabria, able to amaze you when you'll discover the authentic heritage it keeps.

Who finds himself here, for casuality or for choice, will discover the taste of a trip intended as a lovely pause of reflection and discovery, beyond the commonplaces.

A village of historic Italian-Albanian o

A village of historic Italian-Albanian origins dating back to 1400 – at the estreme North-Eastern border of Calabria - in province at Cosenza, at the Southern slopes of the biggest protected area of Italy - Pollino National Park.

In this Eastern side you're captured by the nosy and extraordinary beauty of the landscape, characterized by rocky hills , called "timpe" in local slang, forming the Raganello torrent's canyon, a sought-after goal for passionate and sport-loving people willing to go along its 13 kilometres of throats.

Civita lies in such a superb landscape, watching towards the horizon the peaceful and sensible sea of the Ionian coast, where Great-Greek ancient cities were born.

The chimney pots on the roofs, very original artistic artefacts, product of craft skills, are one of the reasons why to visit Civita.

Eagle's nest
Its geographical position, between two rocky creeks, eagles' uncontested reign.

Beating heart of Arberìa
Its century-old Italian-Albanian culture is still breathed in the air; the ancient language is still spoken and they're recolled the own origins through folkloric events such us the historic Vallje, on the Tuesday after Easter .
The Ethnical Arbresh Museum is the precious testimony which has been keeping and valorizating for 40 years the Italian-Albanian ethnic-historical identity. In S.Maria Assunta Church, of Greek-Byzantine rite, with icons and vestments of the Byzantine tradition, the Eastern spirit is still breathed .
