urban trekking p1

In Piazza Unità d'Italia (former Town Hall square), is the old town hall, recently restored and renamed the Court House. The historic building now houses the city council chamber, the historic section of the city library and spaces and it is used for the artistic Agerolaarte exhibitions. In the same building there is the Ethno-Anthropological Museum, a significant space in which are stored all the symbols of Agerola historical memory. This urban route is characterized by its strong historical meaning, from the Museum and onto a narrow road that runs through the historic Via Roma street, one arrives at the thirteenth century St. Peter the Apostle Church. Inside a chapel that houses the statue of St. Anthony, Agerola’s patron saint, and eighteenth and nineteenth centuries works of art. Leaving the church, going back a few steps, a typical country lane begins in a portico, then continues lined with orchards and vineyards, up to the Church of Santa Maria La Manna, with a precious marble statue. Continue down to the junction and walk along Via Croce, the ancient road connecting the two villages of Pianillo and Santa Maria, which still retains traces of rural architecture and along which you can see the façade of the church of Santa Croce, dating to the seventeenth century. The path ends back in Piazza Unità d'Italia.
