Founded in the 15th century by the Albanian refugees that came here after their hero Giorgio Kastriota Scanderbeg’s death, the town was one of the fiefs belonging to the Sanseverino family. There are many places of worship in this Albanian-speaking linguistic island: San Rocco’s Church, the Chapel of Our Lady of Constantinople, St. John the Baptist’s Mother Church. Here also elegant palaces built in the 18th century can be found. And don’t forget the panoramas: Bosco della Montagnola and Lago Forano. In Plataci, same as in other towns in the area, Basilian traditions remain vivid in the commemoration of the dead, which is done following the Greek Orthodox ritual.
