The Pausilypon Archaeological Park

DOBEDOO – The Posillipo coast is a treasure chest of the Roman Age majesty. Here the high society personalities dedicated themselves to the otium, moving away from the negotium. Here stood the most luxurious and charming villas in the city. The most famous is the one in Pausilypon, that overlooks the Gaiola.

It was erected by Pollione, the right arm of Emperor Augusto, in the 1st century B.C.. The villa had a theatre with a capacity for an audience of around 2000 seats and countless panoramic terraces from which guests could admire the Vesuvio, Capri island and the Sorrento Peninsula.

The maritime villas remains, the majestic tuff groves, the landings and the nymphaeum are now visible on the coast, due to the lowering of the land surface, typical of these areas.

Under the Pausilypon park there is the Seiano cave, today an access point to the archaeological complex. The cave was excavated and then extended, by Lucio Elio Seiano (the cave took his name) to allow the owners of the villas to reach the port of Puteoli (Pozzuoli) and Cuma.

It fallen into disuse for several centuries, until Ferdinand II of Bourbon rediscovered it.

Today it is possible to walk and admire the magnificence of the architectural work of the Roman era.
