PRAIA A MARE - Calabria TRAVEL GUIDE & HOTEL
PRAIA A MARE TRAVEL GUIDE
Praia a mare is a village of 6.871 inhabitants in the province of Cosenza. The origins of the name probably derive from "Palaga Sclavorum", that is the Sclavoni or Schiavoni beach, from the traffic of men and goods that took place along the coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea. Historically, in the territory of Praia have been made ancient findings, dating back to the Upper Paleolithic (between 35,000 and 10,000 years b.C.), including tools made from flint and obsidian. Given its position, it has always been a port of great importance, as it is located on what were the main trade routes of the Tyrrhenian Sea, although for centuries it was part of the nearby mountain municipality of Aieta.
