Capaccio rises behind the Calpazio mountain and is easily visible for the presence of the Sanctuary of the Madonna of the Pomegranate and for the ruin of the castle that dominates today still the lowland.
The castle is built for defending the city from the frequent scorribandes of the Saracens; in 1246 (period Swabian) protagonist of that is remembered as the Conspiracy of Capaccio against Fred II of Swabia.
The Sanctuary of the Madonna of the Pomegranate (XII sec.) is the cathedral of the ancient diocese of Capaccio. Its cult calls back that pagan of Hera Argiva to the mouth of the Sele, also represented with a pomegranate.
