Description

Capua is a nice town located on a bend of the Volturno river. Its name derived from the Latin word campus (fertile land) and the it was founded before the Roman domination. Capua was a very large city in origin, occupying also the territory where now there is the city of Santa Maria Capua Vetere, set near the Volturno river, is rich in monuments, palaces and archaeological Roman relics.
Also worth a visit, the Diocesan Museum of Sacred Art, where you can admire important paintings and precious works in marble.
You also shouldn't miss the Castello delle Pietre, also called the Castrum Lapidum, founded by the Normans and dating back to 1065, the Arch of St. Eligio, the Porta Napoli, partly inspired by the Neapolitan Porta Capuana and the Bridge over the Volturno.
There are plenty of highly prestigious churches in the town, including the Cathedral of St. Stephen and St. Agata, founded in 856, the Church of the Annunziata and the Church of St. Angelo in Audoaldis.
A picturesque position is located in the district of Sant'Angelo in Formis whose summit hosts the Basilica of the same name: one of the most interesting medieval churches in Campania, whose origins date back to the pagan temple of Diana Tifatina.
