Avellino Details

Avellino is a province in the southern Italian region of Campania; the province is also called Irpinia, though very rarely. It is located within the southern chain of the Apennines, among the Picentini and Partenio massive mountain peaks. In the vicinity of the capital city, also called Avellino, there is the famous mountain peak, Montevergine; this is a famous destination for religious pilgrims who wish to visit the Madonna of Montevergine, which is situated in a Benedictine sanctuary constructed in the 12th century. In the city itself, you can check out the 17th century watchtower, the Cathedral and various 17th and 18th century buildings. If youre looking for a bit of ancient history, then you should check out Pratola Serra, where quite a large number of archaeological ruins dating from Roman and Lombard times have been found. For some natural beauty, stop by the town of Forino.
