Altomonte is an antique Norman village, that has been completely restored using materials dating back to Medieval times. All the monuments of Altomonte have been excellently conserved, particularly the church of "Saint Mary of the Consolation" one of the most beautiful churches in Calabria that dates back to the Angevin period. Another spectacular Sanctuary lies in the close by town of San Sosti, the Sanctuary of "Saint Mary of Pettoruto" and is very well known locally. The church with it's three aisles, was built on the spot where a deaf and dumb shepherd had a vision of the Virgin Mary. Every year many pilgrims walk to the church, throwing a number of stones in the river that runs alongside the road, symbolising their sins.
