The altimetric span is thus 744m. Its name must have derived from Iliceto associated with word elce, a tree which appears in the town badge. The early village dates back to the year One Thousand. A medieval castle, built by the Normans as early as 1150 is located in Deliceto. The castle overlooks a deep gorge going downhill. The building presents a high and massive square tower and two round towers situated in the back. Saint Alphonse (Alphonsus Liguori) spent several years of his religious life during the 18th century in Deliceto.
