Castello Aragonese d'Ischia

Discover the island on the island

From the outpost of the Syracuse Greek Hiero I to the conquest of Alfonso of Aragon, from the splendour of Vittoria Colonna's wedding to the English bombing in 1809, from total abandonment to recovery through the intuition of a farsighted Ischian lawyer: twenty five centuries of history between churches, convents, prisons, lush gardens and breathtaking views, suspended between the sky and the sea in a timeless atmosphere.

Open from June 19, 2020, every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 9 am to 8:30 pm (for detailed information on the closing time you can write or call).

* The Castle has been privately owned since 1912: there is an entrance fee. The family that owns it takes care of the restoration and maintenance directly using the proceeds from entrance fee and the management of any staged activities, representing one of Italy's few examples of a self-funding private monument, without needing to resort to public contributions.
