Ischia : history

 


FORIO

Forio is on the west side of the island.

It was known to the Romans who used its thermo-mineral waters, especially those of Citara, whose beach was dedicated to the worship of Venus and Apollo.

Forio was more exposed to invasions than the rest of the island and sixteen lookout towers were built. The most important is the “ Torrione ”, built in 1480 near the harbour. Visit the Torrione and the picturesque church of the “ Soccorso ”.

From the square of this small, white church you can admire wonderful sunsets and sometimes the natural phenomenon of the green ray- a reflection of the sun on the sea.
