Many ruins have been found in the localities of Cesine, Vigna, Selvetelle, Scandravoli, Giardino, Ponticelli, Gaudi, Toppa S. Andrea. The name of the town derives from the Latin "locus candidus" which means clear, shining place.The first historical mention of the town appeared in 1045 when Candida was included, under the Lombard domination, in the Avellino county.
