Castel dell'Ovo, Naples

Castel dell'Ovo, which translates to Egg Castle, is an imposing castle on the Gulf of Naples.

Castel dell'Ovo, which translates to Egg Castle, is an imposing castle on the Gulf of Naples. The castle gets its name from a legend about Virgil, who is believed to have buried the first egg laid by a hen in the castle's foundation. It was said that Naples would remain safe as long as the egg remained intact.

The site has been fortified since the 1st century BC, and the first castle here was built by the Normans in the 12th century. The present structure owes its look to the Aragonese renovation in the 15th century. Laid on a rectangular plan, the castle is a simple stone building with twin towers (Torre Maestra and Torre Normanna), and a high bastion overlooking the 100 metre long causeway connecting it to the shore. It houses the Museum of Prehistory, which traces the history of the area and its inhabitants with a display of ceramics and other artifacts from their everyday lives. The fishing village of Borgo Marinaro that abuts the castle's eastern wall has a pretty marina lined with yacht clubs, cafes and restaurants.
