  • Is a castle as expect in fairy tales. Largely restored, houses the archaeological museum.

  • To drive to the castle we suffered the roughness of the road route. But once at the top it was worth it. First of all, as soon as you set foot in there, you will be enchanted in front of the tomb of the noblewoman. Needless to describe the beauty that unleashes the Interior and all the overall architecture of the ancient castle of Frederick II. Starting with the beauty and grace of the various pavements. Perhaps the narrow streets were built so to better control the unwanted influx of the era. We should improve internal and external services.

  • Following a planned holiday in Salento I decided to break the journey giving me a break in Melfi for sightseeing. I must admit that the choice was not more apt in that the city deserves more than one would expect. Very nice historical centre with the Cathedral and its Plaza where children Frolic and play football, as once happened in Bologna and the surrounding villages (now no longer. Confined at home behind a computer/tablet or Smartphone for fear of who knows what to expect them on the street). See also the door Venusina and the remains of the ancient wall and above 600 metres from the Centre perched on a hill in the Castle well preserved. Nice view at night as well lighted. It is worth getting in to visit the archaeological museum well structured and especially in the clock tower of the Castle makes a fine show if the white marble sarcophagus of Rapolla finely decorated with bas-reliefs.

  • 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.

  • Very nice, especially during the "gathering of falconry"

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