    The Castello di Arechi, which stands atop Mount Baldwin (meaning "good morning") to a height of 300 m above sea level, is a medieval fortress overlooking the city and the Gulf of Salerno is said by Arechi why building this fortification is associated with the Lombard Duke Arechi. Apart from the breathtaking, you can visit the Museum which displays finds from excavations carried out on the site : ceramics, glass, metal objects and coins. It is a fortress which, thanks to its impervieta, it's always remained impregnable over the centuries. As with all legends, a tradition has it that there are secret passages connecting the castle with the ancient towers of sighting the walls, especially with the Forte La Carnale. There are also stories of ghosts. For several years, also organizes events, theme parties, conferences and events. I already knew the site and the superb scenery ... I took part in the ceremony, on the occasion of a marriage with its wedding banquet, organized by the society of the Arechi Castle. The ceremony was held at the Belvedere terrace, in a scenario set up very well, with a wonderful panoramic view! amazing location, beautiful and exciting! The banquet was held in the Court of arms. ... Just wonderful and very very romantic!

  • Ruined castle with the museum of ceramics and coins. Situated on top of the mountain, close to the sea shore so the views are great and worth seeing. However, the castle itself is nothing uncommon in itself - stone walls, staircases etc. Nice place for a stopping if you're travelling on A3 highway to Salerno, as it's really close.
  • View from the castle on a sunset is Amasing!
  • Fantastic view.
  • Nice views of the city but the castle itself is a waste of time, the path is not very clear and you often end at dead ends where there is nothing interesting to see. The museum is very small.
  • The view is incredible here. The museum is a little steep in price but walking through the castle is totally worth it.
