    The castle in the old city centre is the culmination of Taranto. The tour is free, but in Italian. Do you get a flyer with information in English. The tour doesn't take very long, about half an hour. In that time you'll see the inside of the Castle and make you a short climb to the tower. The castle is the only highlight in Taranto. The old city centre is far-reaching glory and not maintained, downright nasty.

  • Great location, fantastic historical monument with free entry till 9pm (in June). Inside you find a great cultural centre.
  • Nice well restored old town, all buildings are white. Castle is renovated, but still closed.
  • One of the most beautiful places I've ever visited.
  • Beautiful!
  • the construction of the castle was ordered by Emperor Charles V from the perspective of the system of coastal fortifications. In the first half of the nineteenth century the Castle gets jail County prison. Today it is used to host cultural events such as painting exhibitions, photographic, cinematographic, and even weddings.
