"At this spot is one of the views on 
which those few travellers who pass from Reggio 
to Naples by land are accustomed to bestow 
enthusiastic praise ; nor is it unworthy of its 
reputation. A flat promenade or platform, 
half surrounded by seats, and a balustrade, 
the resort of the evening idlers of Palmi, is 
terminated at one end by the clustering churches 
and other buildings of the town ; and at the 
other, sinks down into the blue sea, a perpen- 
dicular cactus-clothed precipice."

Edward Lear; Journals of a Landscape Painter in Southern  Calabria, 1847
