Discovering The Town

Guided tour of the historical buildings in Ischia Ponte

If you're curious about the history of the Bordo di Mare in its historic artistic and architectural peculiarities, we suggest you are accompanied by an experienced guide who can tell you the complex history of this corner of the island between churches, Palazzi, historic alleys and craft shops.

There is no lack of anecdotes and curiosities, such as the unusual fishermen property of the Borgo of a church (today Chiesa dello Spirito Santo - Church of the Holy Spirit), the ownership of which is still handed down from father to son. The initiative was born in 1600 and was financed with the proceeds of fishing to face the oppression of the Augustinian Friars against the weaker classes to give them a place of worship and promote mutual aid.
