The town of Castelfranco in Miscano is located on the border between Sannio, Irpinia and Puglia, and is an almost flat area surrounded by countryside with a large number of crops and farms.

The last feudal lords of the territory were the Caracciolo, Di Sangro and Mirelli families. Castelfranco in Misciano was part of the Principato Ultra until 1811.
