Old and new blend together in an interesting guided tour through the modern city of Capua, built along a bend of the Volturno River.
We will admire churches and monuments, such as the beautiful towers wanted by Frederick II of Swabia and the Cathedral of S . Maria of the Assumption. The ‘walk can continue with a visit to Museo Provinciale Campano, set in the historical Palazzo Antignano, which hosts the most important world collection of Matres Matutae, the “Mothers of Capua,” statues of various sizes of women with baby in the womb, whose cult was widespread in the area back to Greek times.
