Chiesa di San Constantino

The original name of the small town was Capri that derives from "goats" and it has been unalterable until 1862 when it was added the appositive "Leone" (lion) to distinguish it from the isle of Capri which is in Campania. Leone refers to the big marble lion which is the symbol of the small town.

The first testimony about the existence of the village dates back to 1320 when it belonged to Vitale de Aloysio. Then it was possession of different feudatories Lancellotto di Larcan, the Filangeri, the Balsamo, the Branciforte and the Cordona. The Cordona have held the poweruntil 1620 when it again became a Filangeri's possession.

The most interesting monuments are the Cathedral church that is medieval, the Chiesa dell'Annunziata which keeps an eighteenth-century bell-tower and the Chiesa of S. Costantino.
