There are various theories about the origin of the name "Valleluce". The most accredited, attributes the name to the Latin "Vallis Luci" or Wooded Valley.

Valleluce is a fascinating place and a place of great historical and environmental interest. It was in fact, home to noble Roman patricians who gave life to the construction of the famous Roman Aqueduct, the remains of which are still visible. It was also home to five Great Saints that while living here performed significant religious works and miracles.
