HISTORICAL NOTES

Historical notes

It rises 640 metres above sea level overlooking the Ufita valley.

The name of the little town comes from the word Castello (from the Latin Castellum) due to the existence from the Norman period, of an imposing Castle. The word Baronia was added to Castel when the district entered under the jurisdiction of the Baronia di Vico. The first written record of this village dates back to the second half of the 11th century when a certain Gradilione in 1079, nephew of the Norman Roberto il Guiscardo, owned the lands of Vico. The fief passed through many hands over the years including those of Maria Onero. Castelbaronia then passed into the hands of Nicola Caracciolo through his marriage to Maria Onero.

Much of the history of the castles is vague. The Castle has practically entirely disappeared. Many earthquakes reduced it to ruins that were incorporated into a religious building in the 17th century.

Pasquale Stanislao Mancini (March 17, 1817) was born in Castelbaronia, he was a jurist and an Italian politician.
