Hotel Ischia. Ischia Offerte. Lastminute Ischia. Ischia Hotels. BARANO D'ISCHIA - TOWN
Piazza San Rocco (13)
Barano town has a population of 8,328 inhabitants and covers about 12 square kilometres. It is situated in the south-west of the island is made up of several ancient agglomerates set on delightful hills.

Its hamlets have their own individual history and traditions. The population, which is mainly of peasant origin, needed houses far from the town centre in order to be nearer their land. Thus, the villages of Fiaiano, Buonopane and Schiappone (and its quarter San Pancrazio), Piedimonte (with its quarters Matarace and Molara) and Testaccio (and its quarters Chiummano, Piano and Vatoliere) were created.

The town’s confines go from the Pilastri (coming from Ischia) and flow into the hills and up to the splendid Maronti beach found at the foot of Testaccio. They then disappear into the greenery on the outskirts of the town of Serrara-Fontana.
Barano has always been renowned for its fresh clean air, its fertile lush valleys, the beauty of its valleys and hills, for its breathtaking views, the Olmitello and Nitrodi springs and its cultural traditions.

You can find examples of all the geological forms of erosion found in Italy here at Barano. The ‘cave’ (quarries) which cut cleanly like eroded ‘cuts’ here and there look rather like the ‘gravine’ (ravines) in Puglia (valleys shaped like deep crevices) or the swollen mounds known as the ‘cicciò’ of Piedmont, or the Bolognese ‘calanchi’ (gullies) (land which erodes easily) - or the ‘crete’ (chalk) of Siena. In this strange and rather awesome landscape characterised by geysers and hot springs you can find the famous ‘Cave Scure’ on Maronti Beach, the natural quarries of Sant’Angelo, that of the bridge of Buonopane and the Pallarito quarry which begins at Fontana. The main monuments are: the parish church St. Sebastiano, the church of S.Rocco, the parish church of St. Giovanni Battista and the parish church of S Giorgio.

The "'Ndrezzata" is a traditional dance with frenetic rhythms and a faked violence expressed by the dancers who, armed with sticks and wooden swords, ‘fight’. It takes place in the quarter of Buonopane on the ‘lunedi’ dell’Angelo’ (‘Monday of the Angel’) and on the festival day of St John the Baptist.
