Chiusano di San Domenico is a town and comune in the province of Avellino, Campania, southern Italy. Situated at 750 metres (2,460 ft) above sea level, Chiusano is on the western slope of Mount Tuoro.
Residence in Chiusano can be traced to the times of Ancient Rome based on the discovery of coins, pottery, and tombs. During the 11th century the Lombards ruled the area and life in Chiusano centered on a castle that was constructed on nearby Mount Dominic.
Chiusano is home to multiple buildings of religious, historical, and architectural significance including the Church of Santa Maria degli Angeli (1710), the Confraternity of the Blessed Sacrament of the Rosary (1712), and the Hermitage of Santa Maria Valley (1230).
