It is nicknamed the City of the Two Seas, due to its peculiar position straddling the Great and Small Seas. The city is divided into three parts: the ancient village or old town is located on an island, connected at one end with a bridge called “stone bridge” and at the other end of the island through the swing bridge which leads to the “Borgo Umbertino”. In the first one, near the Cheradi Islands, in front of the city, a historical population of dolphins and other cetaceans lives and thrives; in the second one, mussel farming has been practiced for centuries and on a large scale, whose products are known worldwide for their uniqueness
