Accent the first "i" when you pronounce the name of this provincial Calabrian city, notable for its Aragonese castle, synagogue, and 16th-century San Giuliano church. It's also a great jumping-off point for the Albanian-speaking village of Cìvita, and Pollino, Italy’s biggest national park, farther afield. Castrovillari's world-class restaurant-inn, La Locanda di Alia, has made the city something of a gastronomical destination.
