Grandly positioned on the side of the rugged Monte Consolino, the village of Stilo is listed as one of Italy's most beautiful borghi (historic villages). It's also known for being the birthplace and home of the philosopher Tommaso Campanella (1568–1639), whose magnum opus was the socialistic La Città del Sole (The City of the Sun, 1602)—for which he spent 26 years as a prisoner of the Spanish Inquisition.
