Foto Acerra: Virgin Mary's Assumption Cathedral
The Cathedral is dedicated to the Virgin Mary of the Assumption and dates back to the 15th century and over years has undergone numerous alterations. Probably the church was built on the site of an already existing roman temple, dedicated to Hercules. The church has a remarkable eight ionic pillars portico and a massive campanile flanking the transept.
Barony Castle

The old castle was the seat of the local barony. Over centuries it was rebuilt several times and finally bought by the municipality and turned into Town Hall. Probably it was built on the site of an already existing roman theatre. Today it houses an important museum.Noteworthy are the bridge and the arch at the entrance and the main courtyard.
