02 – Casale di Cocullo (eng)

This small agricultural community, which is administered by the nearby town of Cocullo, is situated in the immediate vicinity of the ancient city of Koukoulon, which was mentioned by writers of antiquity. On the basis of sporadic archeological findings, the city is thought to have occupied the same site as present-day Triana.

Tombs from the pre-Roman period have been discovered just outside Casale, on the road to Anversa degli Abruzzi. Also on this road is the little church of Santa Maria in Campo (Saint Mary in the Field).
