1. Castello Aragonese di Baia

Show sight on map

The Aragonese Castle is located in Baia, a hamlet of Bacoli, and is located in an area of considerable strategic importance, was erected on a promontory naturally defended to the east by a high tuphaceous cliff overlooking the sea, and to the west from the deep depression given by the warmth of two volcanoes called "bay funds"; With the addition of walls, pitches and drawbridges, the castle was practically impregnable. Its position - from which the whole Gulf of Pozzuoli was dominated to Procida, Ischia and Cuma - allowed a very large control of the area, preventing both enemy fleets as well as any landings of troops who wanted to march on Naples with an action by surprise behind him.

Solfatara is a shallow volcanic crater at Pozzuoli, near Naples, part of the Phlegraean Fields volcanic area. It is a dormant volcano, which still emits jets of steam with sulfurous fumes. The name comes from the Latin, Sulpha terra, "land of sulfur", or "sulfur earth". It was formed around 4000 years ago and last erupted in 1198 with what was probably a phreatic eruption – an explosive steam-driven eruption caused when groundwater interacts with magma. The crater floor was a popular tourist attraction until 2017, as it has many fumaroles and mud pools. The area is well known for its bradyseism. The vapours had been used for medical purposes since Roman times.

The church of Santa Maria delle Grazie is the oldest parish of the diocese of Pozzuoli, elevated on November 15, 1624 by Bishop Lorenzo Mongiò. In ancient times he had competence on a vast territory, which included: Pozzuoli, Agnano, Bacoli, Bagnoli, Licola, Miseno and Monte di Procida. Following the creation of other parishes in these areas, the area of competence of Santa Maria delle Grazie today has only reduced itself to a part of the city center.
