Geography[edit]

The village is bordered by Cariati, Crucoli and Scala Coeli. Terravecchia is perched atop a hill approximately 3 kilometers SSW of the Ionian Sea coast. The surname Pontiero comes from Terravecchia. Although US paperwork shows the name Pontieri came from Italy then US changed it to Pontiero.
