  • Frederick II in appearance embodies years of history of Melfi. Interesting jewelry and all finds tombs it contains.

  • The Castle, which has seen over the centuries a succession of Normans, Swabians, Angevins, Aragonese Popes etc, dominates the town and the surrounding Valley, impressive gem nestled in this beautiful region. The visit, very interesting, you can admire in the context of the archaeological museum housed in its rooms, artifacts found around considerable artistic and historical value. The building is well kept and the ticket costs a few euros (too little would say). Not to be missed.

  • Amazing museum pieces in a stunning setting!
  • Great place definately worth visiting. Museum contains 5/6th century relics of local excavations - armor, weapons, ceramics, and many more. Open till 8 pm.
  • Absolutely amazing museum in the castle.
  • The castle of Melfi is definitely one of the nicest I've been to. The view inside is very spacious with classic finds also in good condition. Pity that in the restoration of salt on the top floor was used for the walls a red paint that I don't consider you very match with the environment ...

  • Very nice Castle, premises open to the public are used as museums where you can see many historical artifacts found in surrounding areas, the spaces that can be visited are on three levels plus a small outdoor area. The premises open to the public are well kept, well kept and very clean, some areas are closed to the public closed I think being restored due to the scaffolding and working tools present (I hope will soon be opened).
