Archaeological Area Caposele

This area takes its name by the villa, owned by Caposele’s princes and subsequently by Rubino family. All the property, with all the natural harbour and the archeological area recently restored, belonged to the only heir of Carlo Ligny, prince of Caposele, who inherited it at the end of 1700 from the last Duke of Marzano’s family, direct descendant and only heir of all the property of the families of Laudato and Marzano.

The possession of the entire area seems to date back at the second half of 1500. The villa has been expropriated from the daughter of the prince, marquise Olimpia de Mari, and it was put up for auction in May 1852 and purchased by Ferdinand II
