Massa Centro

A historic center to be discovered.

Massa Centro is the chief town of the municipality of Massa Lubrense, here are public offices, including the tourist information office of Pro Loco Massa Lubrense.

Largo Vescovado is the main square, with the Town Hall, the Former Cathedral of Santa Maria delle Grazie, and the adjacent Oratory of the Arciconfraternita della Morte e Orazione.

At one end of the square there is the belvedere called “Pennino” which allows you to admire the enchanting island of Capri and the island of Ischia.

Not to be missed, a few meters from the square, is the “Cerriglio”, former Palazzo De Martino, an ancient noble house, with a characteristic avenue of tuff pillars and marble busts; at the end of the avenue the beautiful nymphaeum.

Going down via Palma, in the Villarca area there is the “Quartiere”, the former college of the Society of Jesus, built in 1600 where the palace of Queen Giovanna II of Durazzo once stood. On its side there is the “Torrione”, a typical military architecture of the early seventeenth century, built to defend the Jesuit College.

Massa Centro consists of the aggregation of various ancient hamlets: Morta or Mortora, Sirignano, Quarazzano, Palma, Campo. The historian Maldacea in 1840 wrote: “This modern city of Massa Lubrense is made up of more Casali, close to each other … the air is pure and the atmosphere has a great advantage over the surrounding hamlets, because it is not subject to the fog that hurts terribly to the vegetation of these campaigns above. The City is situated above a irregular floor and is very high from the sea level, enjoys the view of the crater, is sheltered by north winds. Its climate is hotter than the other hamlets, so the fruit will ripen much earlier; it has many gardens of Citrus trees in Casali, while in the villages these trees vegetate badly because of the cold winds.”
