The Jasmin coast
The Jasmin coast is the name that identifies a coastal area of the province of Reggio Calabria washed by the Ionian Sea. The Riviera takes its name from the traditional cultivation of jasmine plant, beautiful and delicate but sturdy vine found throughout the province of Reggio Calabria,especially here, between Stilo and Capo Spartivento. The flowers were collected from women (called gelsominaie) and sold by weight, and exported to France to prepare perfumes.
The Riviera is dominated by hills of different shape. The mountain area is covered by forests in which prevails beech, oak, chestnut, and the typical Mediterranean vegetation. Coming down the hill towards the plain-cultivation are mainly olive groves, vineyards and orchards, citrus groves are in the plain and partly cultivation of bergamot.
