1. Solfatara

Show sight on map

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 in the diocese of Pozzuoli, elevated on November 15, 1624 by Bishop Lorenzo Mongiò. In ancient times it had competence over 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 been reduced to only a part of the city center.
