Three kilometers away from the sea, on the hill of Viglatouri, an entire settlement of the prehistoric and geometric period has been discovered, with houses, sanctuaries, squares, streets, and tombs—the ruins of ancient Kymi, the city connected to the Greek colonization of the 8th century BC in the West and the establishment of the homonymous colony in Magna Graecia.

Rectangular and tiled buildings, paved roads made of small stones, pebbles, and pressed shells, as well as a small section of the wall at the foot of the hill, have been revealed. In the central core of the settlement, there was a square and an oval stone building, the sanctuary, which was found intact and has yielded rich ceramics dating back to the mid-8th century BC.

Since the car doesn’t go all the way there, you have to leave it here and then walk a very beautiful route (dirt road). At any junction you meet go right and it will take you to Viglatouri.
