It is very interesting to visit 800 years old well preserved castle. It is open late in the evening, ticket is cheap. From castle entrance there is amazing sea-view, specially at sunset.

Well preserved castle of a bishop, overlooking the hill town of castellabate and the bay. Mainly interesting for views, nothing much exhibited inside. Interesting underground tunnel, exciting for kids.

A short drive up off the main road (we were staying in nearby San Marco - Casa Liberti - Lovely!) and then just wander, up steps and around bends, through narrow medieval cobbled passageways to the very top of the hill and just stop and...More
