Il borgo di Posillipo: visita all’antico casale
Valid from 2019-04-14 to 2019-04-15
A visit that will make us discover one of the "remote" places of the city of Naples, where the narrow streets and views give an ancient atmosphere: the Casale di Posillipo. A place that stands out from the rest of the neighborhood and that has its origins in the need for fishermen to defend themselves against enemy incursions along the coast. A village that developed around the Church of Santo Strato, linked to a cult led by three religious from Greece, who managed to earn a sum of money performing in the streets of Naples as jugglers and invested in 1266 to build a church in honor of the Saint. Since the Middle Ages this area of Posillipo has developed as an agricultural village and with the establishment of some religious communities, generally constituting the peripheral branches of the orders residing in the center of Naples. Santostrato represents the largest inhabited nucleus of the hill where they are still present, the testimonies of a minor architecture with an agricultural-residential vocation and that returns to the visitor unexpected panoramas.
