Historical notes

The first documented mention of the village was in the year 883 in a document, which described the donation of an estate from the Lombard Prince Sicardo, to the abbess of the S. Lucia.

In 1249 the fief of Lioni was purchased by Giacomo della Marra. Over the centuries, the Castle passed to the ownership of the Caracciolo family and in 1622 it passed to the Carafa family who ruled over Lioni until the abolition of feudalism (1806). The fortress of Lioni was probably transformed into a noble residence by the Caracciolo family. In the following years, the castle was heavily damaged by an earthquake that occurred in 1536, according to local documents, what remained of the castle was incorporated into the structure of the Mother Church in the end of the 16th century.

Ruins of an other fortress are visible only a few Kilometres away from Lioni. Remains of a curtain wall are preserved in the ruins, from which it can be seen how the Norman-Swabian fortress was constructed.
