    The vocal beauty of this church has been heard through the centuries and also through the descriptions of the many travelers who visited these places, which represented one of the stages of the Grand Tour (an integral part of the aristocratic education in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries). Borgia, like Scolacium, was under Byzantine rule, in the tenth, eleventh and fifteenth centuries. This territory was always populated and was chosen by anyone who wanted to dominate Calabria.

    The audio guide tells the story, describes the architecture and reports interesting facts about the church. In 1072 Norman Dukes conquered Palermo and, in Sicily, began an era in which the Byzantine culture, the knowledge of the Arabs and the expressiveness of the Normans fused, creating an extraordinary unity. The symbol of this synthesis is the church of Santa Maria dell'Amiraglio, better known as "la Martorana". It was built in 1143.

    Le voci sulla bellezza di questa chiesa ci sono giunte attraverso i secoli e anche attraverso le descrizioni dei molti viaggiatori che hanno visitato questi luoghi, che rappresentavano una delle tappe del Grand Tour (parte integrante dell'istruzione dell'aristocrazia nei sec. XVIII-XIX). Borgia, come Scolacium, fu sotto il dominio bizantino tra i sec. X e XI. Nel XV sec. Questo territorio veniva scelto da chiunque volesse dominare la Calabria. Proprio qui dal 1059 al 1085 visse temporaneamente Roberto il Guiscardo, re normanno di Puglia, Calabria e Sicilia.

    L'audioguida racconta la storia, descrive l'architettura e riporta fatti interessanti sulla chiesa. Nel 1072 i duchi normanni conquistarono Palermo ed in Sicilia ebbe inizio un'epoca in cui la cultura di Bisanzio, le conoscenze degli arabi e l'espressività dei normanni si fusero creando un'unità straordinaria. Simbolo di questa sintesi è la chiesa di Santa Maria dell'Ammiraglio, meglio conosciuta come "la Martorana". Fu fatta realizzare nel 1143.
