  • to attend the wedding of my friend Marinella we reached the city of Melfi. Just checked what is most striking is the presence of the majestic castle overlooking the city. In the evening, all lit up is truly enchanted. It's still there, untouched, the walls shook the city in defense of the conquerors and that today surrounds, compact and impassable, around the village at the time. Well kept and managed by the Superintendent all the defensive system of the Castle consisted of a ditch by a rampart and by fortified with towers. The entrances to the building, you can still make out, are four, three of which were built in the Angevin period. Consider that the Hill on which it stands is of volcanic origin. Open every day you can visit it alone or with your guide. Within the exhibition of archaeological finds. You can enjoy a beautiful view over the city. worth visiting to take a leap into the past.

  • From outside is nice and impressive. The Museum inside is run well and has an affordable price. Definitely worth a visit!

  • I didn't know that inside of the medieval castle was a collection of artifacts dating back to the Roman and early Christian. It's worth a ride. Ticket costs low compared to what offers the entire structure. Recommended!!!

  • Absolutely amazing museum in the castle.
  • One of the many castles elected or restored by Frederick II of Swabia. Inside there is the archaeological museum which gathers valuable evidence of the past land Hellenistic. ATTENTION admission is free every first Sunday of the month. Shame about the renovations that prevent you from visiting the Castle completely. Breathtaking view of the hills and the Vulture.

  • The big story with a capital S has gone from here, when the South was the center of the world
