aragonese

Location: Ischia, Italy

“The Aragonese Castle  is located on a massive rock, connected to the Italian island of Ischia by a manmadestone bridge. The castle was built in 474 BC, and over many centuries protected residents from Mount Epomeo eruptions and Tyrrhenian Sea pirates. It has also been a convent and an infamous political prison run by the King of Naples from 1823 to 1862.”
