Grisolia (Grìsulia in Calabrese, Chrysulea in Greek Byzantine) is an Italian town of 2,223 inhabitants in the province of Cosenza, part of the Pollino National Park. In addition, the town overlooks the Tyrrhenian coast of the upper Tyrrhenian Sea of Calabria.
Its geographical position is curious, in fact it is perched on a hill and is separated from the nearby village of Maierà by a ravine (the two countries are only 900 meters  as the crow flies).
Well known seaside resort, Grisolia is located in the center of the Riviera dei Cedri with its happy position at 450 m in height. It is also part of the Pollino National Park for over 33.300 hectares where is the summit of Mount La Mula 1910 m s.l.m., the highest reached by an Italian town with outlet to the sea.
It is an area of high biodiversity where the centuries-old chestnut trees (chestnut of the lizard) are the symbols. The presence of the autochthonous roe and the Apennine wolf, are the characteristic faunistic symbols of the mountain territory; on the ridges of La Mula, the Pino Loricato, symbol of Pollino, enhances its biodiversity. Furthermore, in Pantanelli area there is an equipped area and a spring.
The municipal territory appears to be very heterogeneous, extending from the Litorale sul Mar Tirreno, where the hamlet Acchio is located, to the summit of Mount La Mula, located above 1.910 m above sea level.
The town has three residential areas: the new or lido area close to the sea, the intermediate zone near the railway station or marine area and the core of the historic center.
