  • Stands on the highest point of the historic centre of Agropoli, overlooking the hill from which you can enjoy a beautiful panorama. Well preserved, with its ramparts and towers, it is unfortunately not explored inside because of renovations going on.

  • Beautiful and majestic always protect the Nice Acropolis the Aragonese castle has ancient origins the first towers (at the time of sighting) Greek-Byzantine era. Then came the Normans to build the walls still present and finally during the aragonese fortified the castle was enlarged and much to hinder the enemies coming from all directions, at the hands of Sanseverino, count of Marsico feudatories of the Kingdom in Naples. Over the years the destination changed several times become even private residence of notes noble families of the place until the occupation by Napoleonic troops, who made it back the defensive center of the area and the "Principality Citra 1799 ". Today, what once was a great parade is an outdoor theater and a beautiful garden in which are held during the summer the evocative representations. By continuing to visit the West of all the famous "French Room" where the name taken by the presence of French troops during the Napoleonic occupation. But the most famous are still the events lived Luisa Sanfelice a personality of Neapolitan revolution in 1799 and whose vicissitudes inspired the novel "San Felice" by Alexandre Dumas (father) and again the story "Anna Soror" novelist Marguerite Yourcenar.

  • If you visit the temples worth stopping to see this castle also. Lovely views and nice art exhibition inside.
  • Awesome view. Nice castle with a lot of cultural events during the summer
  • Beautiful castle with an amazing view from the top of Agropoli
  • bellisimo
  • Fantastic scenery. Well maintained facilities, within a photographic exhibition of the most beautiful galleries you will visit. A place full of tunnels and charm. Beautiful view from the square, finely restored. It would be nice to visit the Interior, I hope you're doing a job of restoration in this sense. I'd go again? Yes. Don't expect some kind of ride, you can stay totally overreacting about forty minutes, there is very little to turn.
