Project Description

The Village is located at an altitude of about 200 meters above sea level, at the foot of Mount St. Angelo, overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea to the Aeolian Islands. The old town is accessed through four gates: Porta Pirillo to the south, Forge Gate to the west, to the east Gate Cafarone and Gate to the north-west. The Normans built the village on the slopes of Monte Sant’Angelo and on top they built a castle overlooking the valley out to the sea.
