The Aragonese Castle is the proud symbol of Ischia. The Mattera family manages it, ensuring its usability and promoting cultural events that continually enliven its spaces during the spring, summer, and fall, with some initiatives during Christmas and winter as well.

The route to the Castle is made up of more than 20 stops (about 2 km) including the Baroque-style Church of the Immaculate Conception, built in the 18th century; the entrance hall, courtyard and terrace of the Convent of the Poor Clare nuns founded in 1575; the ruins of the Cathedral dedicated to Our Lady of the Assumption; the crypt of St. Peter with its walls frescoed with paintings by the School of Giotto from the 1300s; the 16th-century church of San Pietro a Pantaniello, with its hexagonal plan structure; the magnificent Terrazzo degli ulivi, which looks right over Vivara and Procida and opens its gaze to the gulfs of Gaeta and Naples; the churches of Santa Maria delle Grazie and Madonna della Libera, overlooking the sea and the Gulf of Naples, with the unmistakable silhouette of Capri behind.

The Castle is not just an exhibition of historical artifacts but a place to experience rather than visit, studied by historians and admired by thousands of tourists who visit and capture its memory.
