Overview

Terra Murata anciently called Terra Casata was the first settled zone of the island of Procida. Situated at 91 meters (299 feet) above sea level, it is a picturesque medieval upper town. The climb that leads to it provides a spectacular view from which you can admire the most fascinating landscape of Procida: the village of Corricella from above. La Terra Murata still contains today the peculiar buildings with outdoor staircases, arches and facades of bright colors. Inside the village, there is the most important religious center of Procida, the complex of San Michele Arcangelo. Inside the church, the alterations from the Baroque period are evident, such as the sumptuous gold coffered ceiling with rosettes carved in the central nave. The abbey also contains many works, sculptures and precious silvers. It's possible to visit the abbey every day except Sunday from 9:45a-12:45p and 3p-6p.
