Terra Murata, the medieval village overlooking the sea - Procida Island, Italy

Salita Castello, 23, 80079 Procida NA

Those who choose to spend their vacations in Procida cannot avoid visiting the fortified center of Terra Murata, a place of extreme beauty built on the highest point of the island. Here the walk, even if tiring, is a must.

Historical and cultural center of the island, literally overlooking the sea, Terra Murata is accessible only through a steep climb from which you can admire a breathtaking view over the entire Gulf of Naples. What makes this place special are not only the medieval fortifications and the scenic views, but also the two long range cannons dating back to the Neapolitan Republic of 1799.

Once arrived at the top you cannot miss to visit the Palazzo d'Avalos (1563) which became only later the Royal Palace. In 1830 the building was transformed into a real prison citadel, then closed in 1988. Another wonderful attraction is surely the Abbey of San Michele (XVI century) where numerous works of art are preserved including a painting depicting St. Michael defeating Satan. Not to be missed is also the tour of the underground where there is an ancient burial place.

In Via del Borgo it is possible to admire a typical house dug in the tuff and developed on three levels, with external stairs to reach the upper floors.
