History...

The name “Troclara” appeared for the first time in a document dated 1058. In 1100 the town was mentioned in a notary's act: the bishop of Capaccio and the Abbot of Cava established the boundaries of some lands, mentioning also “serra quae dicitur Troclara”.
The name comes from “Turris clara”, that is “famous tower”: in fact there are several towers on the territory.
The story of this area is linked to that of Sanseverino family that had received it from Princes of Salerno. It was ruled by different families until XVIII century when it passed to De Conciliis barons that ruled it through four elected people that represented the different social classes (noblemen, artists, farmers, farm labourers).
