Roseto Capo Spulico is a town and comune of the province of Cosenza in the Calabria region of southern Italy. Roseto was originally one of the satellite city of Sybaris, at the time of Magna Grecia; it is the coastal areas of Southern Italy on the Tarentine Gulf that were extensively populated by Greek settlers. Roseto Capo Spulico was named after the roses that were cultivated there. The petals were used to fill the mattresses on which the sybaritic slept. The Rose Garden today was born in the tenth century AD and reached its peak in 1260 when the Castrum Petrae Roseti (castle of Roseto) was built. It is also known for The Church of the Immaculate Conception, built in the 15th century, a rustic, masonry church that sits on the edge of a cliff. In the more modern age Roseto is known for it’s beaches and seaside resorts.
