This castle in the centre of Carovigno was inhabited until 50 years ago, and is very much intact. You can now visit it for free. Well worth it for its atmosphere and the views.

We visited this castle in a July afternoon and and art exhibition had place that time. In the castle just a few rooms were open to the tourists. The court yard has traces from it's glamorous past: decorated balconies, stone bench.

The castle's courtyard is very pleasant with Romeo and Juliet like balconies. In summer the castle courtyard hosts cultural events and the castle has occasional art exhibitions.

The courtyard of the castle is simply stunning, I have also visited this area at different times of the year and the way the sunlight shines through the trees is simply mesmerising. Carovigno is a wonderful town and definitely worth visiting!!
