About Acquappesa

Acquappesa today, with its ancient village up high and its welcoming port, offers tourists the chance to see its historical, cultural and folklore peculiarities.

Known since 1700 for its beautiful beach, its clean air and its cultivation of silkworms, it still retains a strong tourist call, whose “birth” can be found in a quote from the 1849 Civil Status: "This marine used for bathing..." and populated by foreigner "bathers".

The name, an evolution of the Latin Aqua pendens (slanted water), denoted the copious springs of water that once    flowed into streams and waterfalls from the rock that overlooks the town, which today are symbolically depicted in the town’s coat of arms.

Some archaeological finds dating from the sixth century B.C. suggest the foundations by Greek colonists, however not yet confirmed.
