The convent on the island in front of Tropea, "Santa Maria dell'Isola" is currently being restructured, as well as the steps leading up to it.

Similarly, there is now progress being made on the elevator from the marina to the old town, all benches on "Piazza Canone" (AKA Largo Villetta) and the railings have been painted, work on stabilising the cliff is underway in several places.

The masterplan being excuted now by the new major basically means a large parking lot near the marina with elevators (and steps) up to the old town similar to what was done in Taormina in Sicily - a good idea.

Work on a bypass from Tropea to Spilinga is now also underway. It means Tropea - Capo Vaticano will take only 7 minutes, which is great news for those (like myself) who have a property there. It is also great news for Santa Domenica and San Nicolo' as they will experience less through traffic.

All in all there is a real positive vibe in town and there is lot happening that gives confidence.

Dennis.

When i looked at pictures of that island i always thought it was a castle not a convent. Be nice when it is finished.

cheers Diane :)
