Castellammare di Stabia is a small town, shaped as a natural bowl among the hills, into an extremely fertile area, rich in mineral waters. It was built over the ruins of the ancient Stabiae: a delightful village totally destroyed in 79 AC by the violent eruption of the volcano Vesuvius, which buried even Pompeii and Herculaneum. The town offers the ancient archaeological finds of Stabiae, charming architecture, numerous churches, and wonderful works of art. It also offers a Thermal centre renowned since 1800 which offers lovely days of water tasting, therapeutic treatments and cultural events.
