Lying in a bowl of the Gulf of Naples, the town of Castellammare di Stabia is situated at the entrance of Sorrento Coast.

Well linked to all the towns of Sorrento Coast, from Vico Equense to Sorrento, Castellammare di Stabia houses numerous historical and architectural beauties and a lively cultural life. 
Among its most important religious monuments, there is the Cathedral, rebuilt in 1587, after a violent earthquake which hardly damaged it in 1436.

Noteworthy is also the Church Chiesa del Gesù, numbered among the most beautiful churches in  Castellammare di Stabia, built in 1609; the Church of Spirito Santo dating back to 1577, known also with the name of Chiesa di San Ciro but also the Church of Porto Salvo, the Sanctuary of Madonna della Libera and the Basilica of Madonna di Pozzano.

Among the destinations chosen by Roman patricians, its terrotory is rich in historical homes and villas.  
The town of Castellammare di Stabia is also famous for the complex of the Thermal Baths, among the most appreciated and modern ones in Europe.

Worthy of being visited is also the Medieval Castle, situated along the Sorrento state street, built by Sorrento people to defend their dukedom, and the two Museums, the Archaeological and the Diocesan ones.

Castellammare di Stabia, dominated by Mount Faito, is also the ideal place for those who wish to spend a holiday in touch with nature.
