Castel Nuovo - Maschio Angioino, Naples

3.8
Castel Nuovo - Maschio Angioino is a medieval castle near the sea with iconic architecture. Many visitors claim the outside view is the most impressive, so be sure to stop for photos. Once inside, you can find a 15th-century bronze door with a cannonball embedded in it, historical artwork, and other antiquities. Also look for the glass-floored room that looks down into the catacombs, which house some unearthed skeletons. English translations are not typically offered, so consider hiring a guide before you go. Start your trip to Naples by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.

  • My favorite castle in Naples. Look at the doors at the gate with the scenes of the war between Aragonese and Angevin pretenders. On the both sides of the gate are excellent bas-relieves with Italian men-at-arms of XV century. In the church you are going to find XIV century frescoes. You have to buy a ticket to get in. Visitors are allowed to take non commercial photo without flash light.
  • It's a wonderful place
  • Impressive castle-museum complex with many interesting components, however, they are not all always accessible and the civic museum suffers from poor lighting design (like many Italian museums) which makes it difficult to fully enjoy all the exhibited artworks.
  • Castel Nuovo is probably the most fascinating medieval building among the seven fortresses built during the centuries. The tickets is a bit expensive (€6), and the setting-up may not be exactly "wow" but it is really worthwhile
  • Maschio Angioino, also said New Castle, along with piazza del Plebiscito is a symbol of Naples. The castle can be visited through guided tours, archaeological and historical/2 a linked to the Grail. I made both the cumulative cost of €15. The castle is also hosted an art show, but you have to buy another ticket. The castle is very well preserved and well worth a visit. Shame about the underground work outside, that go on for many years.
