The town was established around 500 AD, though the original settlement was destroyed in 863, with a new city built on top of it. The famous palace located here was built in 1752 for Charles III of Spain.
Today, Caserta is best known for its luxurious palace, the palace grounds and gardens, and for its history and lovely downtown area.
