Villa Rufolo

Built by Nicola Rufolo, one of the richest Patricians of Ravello, on a ledge and it has become a famous attraction for thousands of visitors. The villa was mentioned by Boccaccio in his Decameron and it is the place where Wagner in 1880 was inspired for the stage design of his opera Parsifal.
The villa is entered through an opening in the arched entrance tower and, after a short street, a clearing is dominated by the Torre Maggiore, which overlooks the terraces as well as overlooks the Amalfi Coast and the Gulf of Salerno with flower gardens.
Here, each Spring a Wagnerian festival is held at sunset; there, suspended high above the cerulean sea and the coastline, the composer is commemorated, and so too is the inspiration he derived from his love of Ravello.
