Town established in the 18th century BC at the centre of the Garigliano Plane.
Around 15 Km from the Baia Domizia Camping Village, this ancient municipality has prehistoric origins verified by the traces of its settlement and remains of a necropolis dating from the 18th century BC. The remains from the Ancient Aurunci people, the Roman architecture and the baroque Church of San Germano are all to be admired.
The town has a long religious tradition with its 21 churches and 11 convents, and it is still famous for its Holy week celebrations, with the Via Crucis and “Miserere” chant.
The classic Thursday market is also very characteristic, as it has maintained the charm and the atmosphere of bygone years. For wine and food connoisseurs, Sessa Aurunca offers a rich selection of typical products, from the famous “baccalà alla sessana” to the D.O.C extra virgin olive oil from the Terre Aurunche and to the pizzelle fried with tomato, garlic and oregano.
