Going over the bridge, once drawbridge, you will reach the volcanic island on which the Aragon Castle stands. An itinerary to discover the most fascinating pages of the history of Ischia and Italy as well.
Up to 200 years ago, the Aragon Castle was the only shelter for the inhabitants of Ischia. In 1500, on the islet there were 13 churches and in 1700, according to a census, 1856 families lived there.
The guided tour will develop through paths that lead to the "Clarisse" nunnery, with the annexed cemetery (once putridarium where nuns were left to decompose); the Cathedral with its crypt with frescos of Giotto's school, the Bourbon prison, and also the alleys, the millstone, the old houses, the churches and a breathtaking view.
