Vallesaccarda, Province of Avellino, Campania
Vallesaccarda is inside the Baronia, an internal Irpinia area enclosed by three important natural communication routes: the Fiumarella stream, the Ufita river, and the Calaggio stream.
The center always followed the historical events of Trevico, from which it depended administratively until 1958, when it was officially established as an autonomous municipality; it is part of the Ufita mountain community.
