  • I am proud and honoured to have membership of a historic and important as Melfi. The castle is one of the major symbols that represent and characterize it, enjoys stunning views and facades, I invite everyone to visit it.

  • I spent a pleasant Sunday morning at the castle of Melfi with a friend. I'd never been before, the staff is professional, perhaps a bit chilly, the throne room was closed, but still the Museum upstairs is well organized, the cartels with explanations are clear and the path is easy to follow. The Council, as it is in the area to visit the Cathedral of Melfi and Lagopesole Castle

  • I was impressed by the grandeur, the location and preservation. Norman castles of the period which has changed in Angevin and aragonese. After crossing the bridge you notice an eighteenth-century portal that contains an inscription that honors the deeds of Charles V, Duke of Austria and Andrea Doria.

  • Norman castle, one of the first feuds Normans in Italy and their capital. From here the famous Federico II issued constitutions of Melfi. With the Norman history and 2.50 you can also visit the Museum which is in the Castle. A place to visit absolutely!

  • The castle of Frederick II, from which the Emperor issued the famous edict of Melfi, the constitutions of Melfi, also known as Liber Augustalis, which constitute the pinnacle of culture of Frederick II of Swabia, is one of the castles, kept everyone in excellent condition, which the Emperor had built in the territories of southern Italy, such as the castle of nearby Venosa (city of Horatio Flaccus) Castel del Monte (in Andria, Apulia), Barletta, Bari and others. The historic center of Melfi and the Castle are home of the festivities of Frederick II about historical parades and to falconry (favorite art by Emperor Frederick II), with epilogue in the Castle, such as unparalleled scenery, on the last Sunday in October. Not to be missed!

  • "Castle, really impressive but largely closed (deadline April 2017, it seems), including the throne room. Remain open, the archaeological museum, based on the finds of Roman tombs and Roman times.

  • The entrance is cheap, I think about 2.5 €. Inside the castle there is an archaeological museum

  • One of the most beautiful medieval castles, across the Italian peninsula, is one of the most important. Influenced architectural level basically from 3 different peoples: the Normans-Staufer (Swabians)-Angevin. Gorgeous to behold, also from the castle there is a fantastic view of the city! Highly recommended if you are in the area!
