Museo Archeologico Nazionale di Crotone

Museum in Ionian Coast

Founded in 710 BC, the powerful city state of Kroton was known for its sobriety and high-performing Olympic athletes. Crotone's museum is located in the modern town, while the main archaeological site is at Capo Colonna, 11km to the southeast. Votive offerings and other remnants of the famous Hera Lacinia Sanctuary at Cape Colonna are a highlight.
