  • A real opportunity was the chance to visit partly this castle and gardens in front of where the condition was an exhibition called white. These are three statues restored that were present on the Arch of the entrance to the Church of Angri. The Guide explained the history of the castle that the beauty and history of these historical artifacts and the effort made by many volunteers for the restoration. In the opinion of the entire group would deserve a different configuration from the current Castle. Exceptional driving.

  • The Doria Castle, no longer houses the Town Hall, at Angri, the façade is a portico and loggia with a circular tower. Dates back to 1290 when Charles II of Anjou, assigned the fief of Pietro De Braheriis or Braherio the Royal soldier Abdul Aziz; with the Princes Doria was annexed to the Castle a princely Park, today the villa comunale. The castle is divided into three blocks: the two concentric towers or tower, the courtyard entrance with 18th-century staircase and the Palacio real. During the struggle for the succession to the throne of Naples among angioini and aragonesi, it suffered various sieges, including that of 1421, led by Strong Braccio da Montone, during which he was set on fire. Resisted even the invasion of the army of 1438 Alfonso of Aragon. The same period is the great tower with battlements which stands to the right of the whole, and which preserves the original moat and is surrounded by a large ring on two floors that surrounds and protects the body of the tower. The tower is also the only survivor of the ancient structure of the fortress, where perhaps it was hosted Charles V in 1535 by the feudal Lord of the time, Alfonso d'avalos. The feud was then of the Carafa family. The Doria, noble family of Genoese origin, acquired large estates in Agro-Nocerino, farms, farmhouses, buildings and came into possession of the fief of Angri, and then of his Castle, in 1613 and until 1806, when feudalism was abolished. In the 18th century, the Doria, they hired the architect to restore the Franciscan complex, which was turned into a mansion. In 1756, was built the castle in the style of vanvitelliano, with superimposed loggias and pincer stairs in black stone. The main tower was coated in battlements, while smaller ones were included in the large three-story building, with the particular open staircase that connects the tower to the Palace. In addition to the grand staircase, is worth visiting the frescoed Hall, cells and outside the Tower, moat and drawbridge. In front of the building was annexed a charming park with large and rich flower gardens with trees. The majestic entrance presents neoclassical motifs and in the middle there is an artificial mound, inside a cave. In 1908 the Town Council bought the Castle, for ninety thousand livres, transforming it into the Town Hall and jail County prison. The Park was used as a city park. The annexe opposite the castle became the seat of Social Mess. The Hague Court, which had been used by farmers to spread the Guinea to dry grain after harvest, was made available for the construction of the War Memorial. During World War II was hit by some 20 artillery shells and mortars, while an earthquake in 1980 made the Castle unusable for eight years. It is now used for exhibitions and public events.
