Many historians think that the name of Vicalvi comes from the Latin words "vicus albus"
(white village), because it was built on a hill of white limestone rock.
On the top of the hill (600 m elevation) there is a Medieval Castle.
The historic Village is located around the Castle. Of interest are the old
buildings and the churches of San Giovanni Battista Evangelista and S.
Peter, S. Antonio, S. Stefano, S. Rocco.
Over time some new quarters have been built down and around
the hill. Today the buildings reach the floor of the Valley where
City Hall is located.
Towards south we find the ancient S. Francesco's Monastery.
Very interesting in Borgo's quarter is S. Nicandro Church.
The main quartes are the following:
1) Centro Storico,
2) Colle D'Agnese
4) Delicata (City Hall)
8) Colle Flonio
10) S. Francesco
