Grotteria is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Reggio Calabria in the Italian region Calabria, located about 70 kilometres (43 mi) southwest of Catanzaro and about 60 kilometres (37 mi) northeast of Reggio Calabria.
The local economy, once based on agriculture and shepherdry, has heavily suffered from emigration, which shrank the population from 9,242 in 1951 to about 3,380.
