Where We Are

The Canned and Preserved Goods Manufacturer PANCRAZIO is located in Cava de’ Tirreni, a city situated on the outskirts of the Amalfi Coast, 5 miles from the port of Salerno and 30 miles from Naples, the capital of the Campania Region of Italy. Cava de’ Tirreni lies in a pleasant valley known as “Metelliana”. The name originates from an ancient Roman family, the gens Metilia, who lived in the area during the Imperial period. Nestled amongst the foothills of the Monti Lattari, the surrounding vegetation is luxuriant, and the countryside quite unspoilt.

At the beginning of the second millenium the area was the cradle of one of the most famous Benedictine Monasteries, the Badia della SS. Trinità, an abbey founded by Saint Alferio. Its excellent position and its orografical configuration have ensured that the town of Cava de’ Tirreni, once known as The City of the Cave, probably due to the fact that it was situated in a cave overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea, has always prospered. Over the course of centuries it became a flourishing market town, as evidenced by its continuing modern day commercial activities. It is the only example in Southern Italy of a town with stone arcades the socalled “Portici”. It is also known as “Little Switzerland” thanks to its surrounding green and rolling hills and as the “Bologna of the South” due to its characteristic arcades, typical of the historical town in Emilia-Romagna.
