The city of Crotone was founded by the Greek colonists from the region of Achaia in the third quarter of the eighth century B.C., in the site of a pre-existing indigenous settlement and represented one of the most important towns of Magna Graecia. The old town developed into a maze of narrow alleys and small squares to the Cathedral and the central square piazza Pythagoras, a meeting point between the "old" and "new" parts of the town.
