Falconara Albanese, called by its inhabitants arbëreshë Fallkurana in the ancient Arbërishte language, is the only municipality of the Albanian linguistic minority located on the Tyrrhenian side, near the city of Paola, in the province of Cosenza.
Founded in 1517 by Albanian exiles who arrived in Calabria, Falconara still keeps the language, customs and customs alive, in addition to the Greek-Byzantine rite.

Starting from Piazza Scanderbeg, we reached the cross of Castelluccio, located in the Kurtina district, at a height of about 50 meters, crossing the narrow alleys that characterize the whole city.
