A beach that runs along the vineyards, a road that marks the life of Cirò’s people, Punta Alice with its lighthouse swept by the sea wind.
91. Here the beaches are so long that they have numbers. To get to 91 we have to follow the rows as far as the earth blends into the waves of sand and then into the sea.
106. Just a few metres wide and 491 kilometres long, State Road 106 divides the seaside vineyards from those on the hills and marks the life of the inhabitants of Cirò.
Punta dei Venti. The large lighthouse at Punta Alice looks with a bright eye at the wind that moves the sand, the sea, the currents and the rows of vineyards.
