$0 per person

The Real Casa dell’Annunziata, situated in the Pendino district near Forcella, looked after orphaned and abandoned children. It is still possible to see the foundling wheel, a cylinder in which babies could be left either due to poverty or because they were illegitimate. The church was built by the Anjevins and was subsequently restored by Luigi Vanvitelli. It underwent further restoration after the Second World War as it had been seriously damaged.
