Vico Equense preserves a wealth of evidence of its past. Sites include the Sorrentine peninsula’s only Gothic church, the church of the Annunziata, as well as Castello Giusso, a castle founded by the Angevins and restructured between the 17th and 19th centuries and the interesting Antiquarium, which displays archaeological finds (7th-5th century BC) from a necropolis.
Other interesting sites include the Museo Mineralogico Campano, a museum that displays over 3,500 examples of 1,400 types of minerals from all over the world. It is one of the most important scientific museums in the region for the quality and sheer number of objects on display.
Vico Equense is known everywhere for its pizza ‘by the metre’, which was invented in the 1950s. This local rectangular form of pizza is sold by metre length.
