Fief of the powerful Sanseverino family, it probably takes its name from the circular shape of the ancient inhabited area. Garibaldi stayed here in 1860. Rotonda is full of historical memories and landscapes: the Sanctuary of S. Maria della Consolazione, the Mother Church, the Church of the SS. Rosario, St. Anthony’s Church, S. Carlo Borromeo’s Church. There are also numerous mansions and chapels. Interesting is the water mill in Sircoli, the ruins of a furnace and of an ancient spinning mill. Nature also offers Grotta dell’Eremita, Grotta della Voragine, and the splendid scenery of Mount Pollino.
