Carmela was the favorite lady of the Queen Sancia of Maiorca, Roberto D'Angiò's wife, a faithful companion, both in reciting the prayers and in gathering her secrets.

Two real friends, separated only by the noble rank. When Sancia died in Gragnano in a place of the Lattari Mountains not far from the one in which he loved to take refuge to pray, in the Resicco area halfway between the Castle of Pino and the top of Monte Sant'Angelo, Donna Carmela decided to elect that wonderful corner of nature to place where to build the crib of Pimonte.

It was the place where the queen used to stay, not so much to rest as to let the other ladies rest, who followed her along the devotional pilgrimage whose final destination was the small church located on the top of the mountain.

In honor of this legend, the name dedicated to Villa Donna Carmela had its origin.
