After the terrible earthquake of 1908, the city was rebuilt along with its wonderful lungomare (seafront promenade). According to the famous writer Giuseppe Verga, it was the most beautiful promenade in Europe.

The city is rich in archaeological materials excavated from sites in Calabria and Basilicata, which are important testimonies of the culture of Ancient Greece. In the collection, among the most renowned discoveries are the Riace bronzes: two large statues of Greek warriors, which depict the most classical image of Greek culture, by showing the harmony of the universe through the perfection of the human body.
