Calabria is full of surprises and Santa Maria della Consolazi is one of them. Behind it's gothic facade the interior is quiet and austere but full of a particularly Calabrian history.

A very interesting interior and well worth climbing to the top of the village for. Some good artifacts inside to enjoy.

The sight of it from anywhere in the village tells you exactly where you are. It's simple classic elegance is worth the stop.

The little village of Altomonte was deserted when I visited on a hot summers day. The church is simple and charming.

Well worth visiting. Altomonte is a beautiful town, should be visited more often. The people were wonderful throughout our visit. Santa Maria della Consolazione is a lovely church; the adjacent civic museum is small but boasts some lovely ivory sculptures.
