Mercogliano is a delicious center of stay surrounded by a luxuriant nature that guards an architectural patrimony of notable interest.

Known with the name of Capocastello is the ancient center, in which they is able, still today, to admire the ruins, recently restored by the Superintendence, of the suggestive Castle medioevale, destroyed by a dreadful fire in 1656. Just to the entry of Capocastello it is visible, besides, the only line survivor of the ancient boundaries that once surrounded the whole suburb: it deals with the Door of the Saints on whose superior part is possible to admire a fresco of St. Martin, St. Florentine and St. Flaviano.
