Campobsso

Cities and Towns in Abruzzo and Molise

Campobasso, the principal city of Italy's Molise region, is the synthesis of two historic identities: the picturesque medieval center with its Monforte Castle, and the 19th century town inspired by the idea of the garden city. Thus, narrow streets, twisting stairways, courtyards and ancient portals alternate with green areas, large open squares, gardens and fountains.

Monforte Castle, dating back to 1459, dominates the historic center of the town, its dark, sturdy fortified walls expressing the defensive rather than residential purpose for which the building was first erected. The Church of SS. Trinità, which dates back to 1504, became the Cathedral of Campobasso in the 20th century. The building, with three naves and striking neoclassical facade is, without doubt, the most significant ecclesiastical edifice in the town.

Located right in the heart of Campobasso, the town park Villa De Capoa is a meticulously kept classical-style garden featuring shady, tree lined avenues, ornamental hedges and secret corners. Palazzo del Municipio and the Banca d'Italia are fine examples of 20th century urban architecture. The Palazzo del Municipio houses a statue of San Giorgio, patron saint of the city. A number of valuable artworks depicting the history of Molise hang in the salons of the Banca d'Italia.

The Sagra dei Misteri is the region's most important religious festival, when, during the Corpus Domini, the "Misteri", a series of curious wooden contraptions, are paraded through the town on the shoulders of the faithful.

Client Testimonials

I went to high school with the owner of the company who organized my honeymoon for myself and my now wife from Tokyo. We spent three short weeks seeing Piedmont and experiencing wine paradise there, then heading to Nice in France with our private driver and flying to Rome where honestly 4 days is NOT enough. They keep saying to spend more time and we could not agree more! You need to spend more time in many of these places. Over the course of our time in Italy we saw so much and loved it all, though Sicily and the Mondello estate they had at us, 2 minutes walk from the prettiest beach in the world was our favorite and Roberto the owners there who know Jess and her team made it so wonderful for us! We are planning on going back and even considering moving to Italy we had such a great time!
