Open round the year, even on holidays, the Castello Aragonese, as testified by recent excavations, has a long history to tell.
It is now one of the biggest tourist attractions of Italy, thanks to its mixture of ancient structures of Norman-Swabian-Angevin, Byzantine, and Greek origins. You can see them all during the free guided tour of this place.
The new Aragonese castle had been rebuilt between the years 1487 and 1492. The internal walkways and the cylindrical towers are characteristic.
Step inside the castle to view S. Leonardo's Renaissance chapel.
Although it was transformed to a prison, it changed back to a military fortress during the Napoleonic period.
