A trip to the realm of Lombards and architectural star, Zaha Hadid

Salerno has an ancient and prestigious history. Founded by the Etruscans in 109 B.C., after the domination of the Goths and Byzantines, the city in Campania became an independent Longobardian principality. During the Norman reign of Robert Guiscard, the monumental Cathedral and the royal palace of Castel Terracena were constructed. The city became a thriving centre of research with the Salerno medical school, the first and most important in Europe.

Around 1700, during the Spanish rule, the city of Salerno was restored through the construction of refined houses and prestigious churches, which still characterise the main streets of the historic centre.

Together with Castello di Arechi II, the legendary Lombard prince who ruled Salerno, the maritime terminal became the new symbol of the city. Built by the famous Anglo-Iraqi architect Zaha Hadid, the Salerno Maritime Terminal is open to the public during the month of September until late evening, on the occasion of the festival of San Matteo, patron saint of the city.
