Extended over a territory of about 5.6 sq km and with a variable altitude that at some points reaches 788 meters above sea level, the town of Casamicciola is famous since the last century for the imposing presence of thermal water spring sources. For this reason from the 50’s of the last century the name of the town becomes “Casamicciola Terme”. Known since the nineteenth century for the abundance of thermal springs on its territory, the municipality boasts among its guests some illustrious personalities, such as Garibaldi, Ibsen and Marten, attracted by the miraculous benefits of the thermal waters of the territory. Victim of frequent earthquakes – the last one dates back to the late nineteenth century-in the Neapolitan area the name Casamicciola becomes soon synonymous with “upheaval” and “earthquake”. Because of the continuous telluric movements this territory was often destroyed and rebuilt. Today preserves some interesting ruins of the ancient glory like those of the “Pio Monte della Misericordia”, the first thermal establishment. Extended to the slopes of Mount Epomeo, Casamicciola is equipped with a port, both tourist and commercial, the daily alternation of goods and passengers, makes it one of the most active and important on the island.
