Around Stilo, a southern Italy village

In a vast, fascinating and uncontaminated forested landscape.

The Mangiatorella springs is located in southern Italy, in the pristine woods of Stilo, an ancient village full of monuments, churches, fountains, museums, whose ancient origins date back to the greek period.
The history of Stilo is distinguished by a succession of rulers, the Byzantine and Norman before others, whose traces are still well visible. The Cathedral of the ninth century, called Cattolica, its an outstanding example of Byzantine art and architecture. The Cathedral offers a breathtaking panorama, ranging from the rooftops of the village, leading to the sea. Dominating the valley is the imposing Norman castle, also famous for being the birthplace of Tommaso Campanella, a great Italian philosopher.

In a absolutely unspoilt environment

Mangiatorella forth at 1200 mt above the sea level, in the absolutely unspoilt environment of the Serre Calabresi Park.
In this lush area nature does not show any chemical or microbiological contamination, or that caused by human settlement, as testified by the content of nitrates in the Mangiatorella Mineral Water, which is practically zero.

Where King Ferdinand II went hunting

The immense park in which Mangiatorella resides hosts the ‘Ferdinandea’, a stupendous mountain area that owes its name to the Bourbon, Ferdinand II, who loved to hunt in its woodland and who had a villa built there, and where later were inaugurated a railway, a barracks, a series of buildings, stables and barns.

For more than a century, it has been the destination of many admirers who directly enjoy the benefits of the water, remaining enchanted by the dense centuries-old woods surrounding the springs. The mountains from which Mangiatorella Mineral Water is derived are composed of crystalline rocks and specifically of granites.

The Calabrian Serre are a vast mountainous area of Calabria, the southern Italian region, and are characterised by their lush vegetation, largely made up of wonderful centuries-old woodlands.

 “There was something so wild so very sombre in those mountains, in the dense obscure woods, as to subdue the mind.” This is how an English traveller in 1828 commented on her excursion the Calabrian Serre, impressed by the thickly forested and wooded scenery.
