Barano d'Ischia

Description

The locality is a privileged destination of tourists due to its wide, sandy beaches, such as Maronti. This beach is well-equipped, full of bathing establishments and green landscape, characterized by its dense pine groves in Faiano.
The so-called "Pilastri", are particularly interesting. They were built at the end of the sixteenth-century to bring water to the centre of Ischia and resemble a series of double arches that unit the backbone of the Faiana highland with the offshoots on Monte dei Vezzi.
Barano offers a summary of all the erosion found in Italy.
The "caves", in fact, cleanly cut the land with chunks of eroded shapes: this landscape, characterized by fumaroles and sources of the hottest water, that gush from the water's edge, hosts the famous "Cava Scura", on Maronti beach, the cave of St. Angelo, Ponte di Buonopane cave and Pallarito cave.
The main monuments worth visiting are the Church of St. Sebastian, which was probably built at the end of the XVI century and the location of the Augustine convent up to 1653. It hosts various canvases by the Lacchese artist Alfonso Di Spigna and a half-bust statue of St. Sebastian, which dates back to the XVIII century.
The Church of St. Rocco, dating from the XVII century, hosts a canvas by Cesare Calise dated 1632 of Madonna del Rosario: the parish Church of St. John the Baptist from the XIII century and the parish Church of St. George, which was already existing and much smaller, dates to the 1300 century. It was later extended and a bell-tower was built. Today, the church has four alters, one of which was a gift from Ferdinand II, a crucifix from the fourteenth-century, a Di Spigna painting and a very old cross.
The folkloristic Ndrezzata dance takes place at the highly unusual show in the district of Buonopane on occasion of the Feast of St. John the Baptist and during which "dancers", to the beat of a free dance, are armed with "mazzarielli" and wooden swords as they combat each other.
