Castello Aragonese

Rising majestically from the azure waters of Ischia’s easternmost point, Aragonese Castle is one of Ischia’s most incredible sights and most-visited landmark. The immense castle clings to the top of what was once a natural volcanic rock, and dates from as far back as 474 BC, although most of today’s structure originates from medieval times.

Accessed via causeway from the mainland, Castello Aragonese is often compared to France’s Mont Saint-Michel, and boasts an equally impressive cluster of buildings, with several temples, ancient ramparts and frescoes catacombs hidden deep underground. Once upon a time, the castle was impossible to reach unless you had the right authority. Today, however, a modern lift whisks you into the citadel’s heart.

Opening hours: The castle is open year-round, from 9:00am to sunset.

Price: €10 per adult / €6 per youth aged 10– 14 for access to the entire site. Tickets cost less for selected features (treasury, vault, royal tombs and crypt).

*Prices and opening hours may be subject to change.
