  • The aragonese Castle is very well renovated. You enter through a room opening on archaeological excavations in the caves of cerci and romanelli. Then a large room is dedicated to the Hellenistic History Roman and medieval Castro. You will enjoy to revise the myth of Troy and the work of Virgil. Finally, you'll visit the terrace of the castle with a small beautiful panorama.

  • Visit not to be missed ... both to the castle for the Archeological Museum ... exciting the bust of Athena and the various artifacts found.

  • Itself is gorgeous! A castle "surrounded" by the sea! Nice Castle and its history, but what makes it special is the Museum set up just inside. Precious and rare, even unique, artifacts. Here is preserved and exposed the bust of the goddess Minerva also speaks of Vergil in his "Aeneid". Is it really worth to be visited!

  • 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.
