History

The first records of Frattamaggiore date to 921 AD, although the area was probably settled in pre-Roman times. The people of Atella built a watchtower in response to the Vandal invasion of 455AD, around which refugees from Miseno settled when their town was razed by the Saracens; here they also built a Catholic temple in honour of Sossius, that is the patronus of Frattamaggiore.
