  • Let me start by saying that all Castro is to visit ... but the Aragonese castle is one of the activities that should not be missed! Restored very well, many halls with artifacts that tell the story of the various eras and mythological stories ... are focused in particular on the Aeneid (I know that they also make a historical reconstruction where you can take part as extras but we did not see it). Beautiful from afar, I recommend to go down to sea level to see in full the construction of walls of the Castle and the city ... from here we realized how large and well built! Not to be missed!

  • Reading the many reviews of the castle I'm surprised that Americans and English haven't discovered one of the most beautiful sites in Puglia yet! It is off the beaten tourist track but certainly offer...  more »
  • We have participated in medieval Castro. I recommend that you offer as extras and they will be happy to let you wear the clothes and offer you free pittule.

  • They just opened an archeological museum that's worth a visit.
  • The beautiful impression I have always received from Castro, which is beautiful and full of history and inhabited by people educated and very civilized it sadly ruined by the rudeness of the Lady at the ticket counter of the Museum site in the Aragonese castle. Having entered, my family and I in the rooms facing the courtyard of the Museum have been reprimanded by the custodian not having a ticket. There were no clear indications, the ticket office was not at the entrance but sideways and barely visible. And anyway it was not necessary to say, and I quote: "in any Museum in the world you pay the ticket". I don't know who took this employee but I assure you it's not up to the tasks it performs. Aside from the fact that in hundreds of castles which hovisitato you can enter into the lobby and then find the Ticket Office see the Museo medievale di Matera, but none, other than this cafona, I've never been treated so badly.
