The althar, named Torre del Capro (i.e.: "Goat's Tower"), was the original name of the village and was first mentioned in 1850, on a map of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies.In the village, originated from the ancient monastery of St. Catherine (1033), were built some notable buildings, as a palace and a castle, during the 18th century to the beginnings of the 19th. In 1830 It became a parish.GeographyCaprioli is located in southern Cilento, along the Cilentan Coast by the Tyrrhenian Sea.
