Villa Damecuta

Villa Damecuta is one of the twelve Augustan-Tiberian Roman villas. Due to the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD and of the numerous pirate raids, few traces remain of the original villa.

The watchtower, built in medieval times, remains visible in its entirety, Damecuta derives from Domus Cuta (dark and hidden house), expressing the habit of the Emperor of Tiberius of preferring small living spaces similar to caves.

During the journey between Anacapri and the Blue Grotto, on foot, a stop in this place will be pleasant.

Opening hours: From April to mid-October 10-12 and 16-18 from mid-October 10-13 and 14.30-16.30 Closed on Mondays – Reachable on foot from Anacapri along Viale Tommaso de Tommaso, Via Pagliaro and Via Grotta Azzurra.
