This beautiful, majestic islet, sung by the poet Ariosto and former home of Lady Vittoria Colonna, is regarded as the symbol of the island of Ischia.
The castle was the setting of most of the crucial battles and events that marked the history of the Aragonese court. A gaze at the castle will bring you back in time: you will find yourself breathing the noble atmosphere of the Middle Age or admiring the elegance of a Renaissance feast, both ages that left more than a trace here on the island.
Surrounded by the mysterious aura of the unfolding history, the Renaissance cathedrals and churches, frescoed catacombs, arches and vaults, ancient walls and dark prisons of the islet will make your trip unforgettable. The silent castle tells its history through its architecture: it is like a giant stone book waiting to be read and enjoyed.
