More Info

There are countless religious and civil architectural emergencies in the city, whose historic center, consisting of the Civita, Saracena, Ràbata, Monte and Piano districts, develops in a perfect “spindle” pattern, typical of medieval cities built on the hills:

  • Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta, in which, in 1383 Luigi I of Anjou was crowned king of Naples;
  • some churches adorned with frescoes;
  • convents (Sant’Antonio di Padova, Santa Chiara, Santa Maria del Carmine, San Francesco d’Assisi, Santa Maria delle Grazie);
  • Norman Tower, 27 m high with walls even over 5 m thick, from which it is possible to admire a superb panorama. On the top, although there are no walls around it and the crowning arches are almost level with the floor, if you stand on the stone placed in the center of the surface, you will hear your voice echo as if you were in a cave.
  • Torre della Saracena and Torre della Ràbata;
  • Gates of the fortified city : “Fountain”, “del Monte”, “della Ràbata”, “della Saracena”, “delle Beccarie”;
  • Palazzo Ducale , which houses the archaeological museum.
  • Noble palaces , most of which were built between the fifteenth and seventeenth centuries.
Also worth visiting is the “Sanctuary of the Madonna di Fonti”,

Located in the wood of the same name, the sanctuary, according to traditional sources, was built around an ancient image of the Madonna and Child painted on a low wall and discovered, in the midst of brambles and dense vegetation, thanks to a cowherd who, after having lost a cow found her, kneeling on her front legs, contemplating this image.

The sanctuary is, however, one of the main Marian places in the region, a pilgrimage destination especially on Sundays in May.
