An ancient mansion recently restored, Palazzo Sgroi creates a romantic, poetic and charming atmosphere. It is located in Laureana Cilento , known as the “Country of the Lords” because of the many noble palaces, including that of the Duchess Luisa Sanfelice, famous for being the heroine and martyr of the Neapolitan revolution of 1799 and of whom Alexandre Dumas Sr. narrates in the novel “La Sanfelice”. Palazzo Sgroi housed the Sanfelice family’s Police which, from this strategic position, controlled the center of the medieval village. Ancient ‘agora’ of the country, it used to be the way of soldiers heading to Jerusalem for the Crusades.
