The origins of Andrano can be traced back to the attacks of the Vandals and the Barbarians in the 5th century. Many villages on this occasion were annihilated. Among these there was the Feronzo farmhouse first and then Cellino from whose ashes the current urban settlement was born. The town took the name of Andrano in honor of Sant ‘Andrea who was elected patron of fishermen.

Various lords succeeded in possession of the castle and land of the Andranese fiefdom: Pietro De Curla, the Rossi family, the De Castelli, the Sambiasi, the Capece, the Del Balzo Orsini, Micheletto Hugot, the Saraceno, the Spinola, the Gallone, the Caracciolos with Ippolita and Laura Caracciolo. In the locality there is a 15th century watchtower called Torre Porto di Ripa or simply Torre Di Andrano. Of it remains only that part that once was the cistern.
