There are many monuments and buildings worthy of interest that tourists can visit and see in Avellino; since the middle of 1300 was dominated by the Spanish, in particular by the Caracciolo family who transformed it into a center of culture and art. Right in the center of the city lies in fact one of the most important buildings, Palazzo Caracciolo, of the second half of ‘700; while promoted as a symbol of the city, it is the imposing clock tower, a Baroque building located in Piazza Amendola, 40 meters high, as if to demonstrate how in the seventeenth century the city had already reached a high level of culture and art. Other points of interest are the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta in the Romanesque style of the twelfth century containing inside the relics of St. Modestino patron of the city; the church of Santa Maria delle Grazie adjacent to the Capuchin Monastery, both on the top of the hill. Noble residence built at the end of the sixteenth century in the Renaissance style is instead the Casino of the Prince used like a picture gallery with many works of art.

In the rest of the Province, relevant are the Abbey Museum of the Sanctuary of Montevergine di Mercogliano with artifacts and works of the equally famousSanctuary of Montervergine; the Ceramics Museum of Calitri; the Museum of St. Francis of Friars Minor of Montella.
