Santa Paolina

Description

Santa Paolina is a town in the province of Avellino, located along the ridge of Monta Gloria, in an area devoted to the cultivation of vineyards, from which a superb Greco di Tufo wine is producted. Included into the barony of Montefusco since the XIV century with the name of San Felice, during the XVIII century it was property of the Mount of Mercy of Naples until 1806 (year of the abolition of feudal rights). In 1814, due to a violent landslide, the town was completely destroyed and rebuilt upstream, in the hamplet of Sanctae Paulinae, so called for the presence of a church dedicated to the Saint, from which the place name derives. Attractions:
- the characteristic town planning, organized into hamlets;
- the vineyards which produce an excellent Graco di Tufo wine, symbol of the town;
- the handmade bobbin lace;
- the Church of Santa Paolina, in Romanesque style, is flanked by the Oratory of SS. Rosario and the XVIII century belltower. The façade has two stone portals; the interior has one nave with beautiful works of art of the XVIII and XIX century.
- the Chapel of the Saints Gennaro and Arcangelo (XVII century), rural church built for devotion to the Saints;
- the Church of Santa Lucia;
- the Chapel of Santa Maria delle Grazie (XVIII century), built by Domenico Consolazio;
- the Chapel of Our Lady of Sorrow (XVII century), built by the locals.
