Discover the municipality of PaduliThe town of Paduli is located at 14 km of Benevento and is located at an altitude of 349 meters.
Paduli is a village of medieval origin, located on a hilltop between the valley of the Calore and Tammaro rivers. The plain below is surrounded by the roads connecting Benevento to Puglia.
The town has always been of great strategic importance, so much so that in 1137 Ruggiero the Norman hid there to resist Count Rainulfo’s siege. After the Swabian period, the town was the capital under the jurisdiction of the County of Ariano. In the 14th century, the Angevin family prevented the papal government from occupying it and it later became a possession of Alfonso of Aragon.
Later, it was a fief of the Shabran, Carbone, Pignatelli, Cossa, Caracciolo, Barone, Spinelli and Coscia families of Benevento. The latter built the feudal palace in 1727, which is now the seat of the municipality.
Today, the population is around 3800 inhabitants. The town is an active agricultural centre, known for its oil production.
