Web Site

A row of white houses with sloping roof and arched doors, candid lanes, in which echoes the echo of a bygone era, opens the suggestive Rione Junno. The name derives from king Pilunno, that the inhabitants worshiped so much to build a pagan temple in his honour, changed later in an oratory dedicated to San Salvatore.

A feast for the eyes, an emotion for the heart, this old town is the original urban center of the city. Built with the spread of the cult of St. Michael, when shepherds replaced the caves with single-family homes in a single plane, whitewashed, with arched doors, lined up in rows on different levels along the alleys and stairways. This corner of the city retains all the charm of the medieval quarter.

Walking through its streets, you can still feel the soul of the neighborhood, that lives in the voices of children playing in the streets. The rustle of the hands of the artisans who work the stone and leather, untiring women who prepare the homemade pasta and the friendly smile of its people.
