About the village

Bagnoli Irpino, in the province of Avellino, is known for the production of the Black Truffle of Bagnoli and the Castagna di Montella.Also known for the Laceno lake and located close to the Picentini mountains, the municipality is part of the historical region of Sannio Irpino.

First conquered by the Lombards and later by the Normans, the village has several historic buildings that take visitors back in time.The Collegiate Church Santa Maria Assunta, rebuilt after a fire in 1651, of Lombard origin dating back to 900, is located in the historic center of the town. Inside there are important works, such as the wooden choir depicting scenes from the Old and New Testament, and valuable works by local artists, the largest of which is Domenico Venuta.

In the village there are also two castles: the first is of Lombard origin, built around 870, when the principality of Benevento was divided giving rise to that of Salerno; the second is of Norman origin, dated between 1050 and 1100. Also worth visiting are the Palazzo della Tenta, the Fontana del Gavitone and the Clock Tower and the Church of Santa Margherita, located in the main pizza of the village.

The historic center of the town is of the nineteenth century, with narrow and steep streets. The original and oldest nucleus is the Giudecca or Jewish district of Jewish origin, dating from around 1300/1400. The center offers several urban views of particular importance, hosting many noble palaces, especially around the main square, where the ancient nobles lived.

Among the events that animate, every year in Bagnoli Irpino there is The Chestnut Festival and the Truffle Festival/Bagnoli Irpino Black Truffle Market Exhibition, an unmissable gastronomic event with more than 200 stands, shows and handicraft exhibitions. The enogastronomic proposal of the village falls on: Pasta with black truffle from Bagnoli, Bagnolese Tartufo salad, bag of the brigand and liqueur with black truffle from Bagnoli.
