Castellabate is a small village at South Italy. A quiet nice place with a great view and the original Southern italian style.

When Gioacchino Murat came to Castellabate in November 1811 he said: Qui non si muori which translates to Here you do not die. He died soon after which is ironic. Before you see Castellabate and the castle, please see the film Benenuti al Sud. It...More

Nice place to visit. There isn't much to do, but the small streets with steps and old buildings are great to walk through. If you're in this area you should visit this nice small town.

Well preserved castle of a bishop, overlooking the hill town of castellabate and the bay. Mainly interesting for views, nothing much exhibited inside. Interesting underground tunnel, exciting for kids.

Hop on a local bus & up you go. A maze of medieaval streets to wander through. The castle is now really an art gallery, but costs pennies to enter. There's a great bar/restaurant just below it, with stunning views across the sea to the...More

I have visited several times and will return again because the view is spectacular and there are so many photo ops - cobble stone pathways, mid evil architecture, a bell tower and a museum by the church housing sacred artifacts- a mere one euro entrance...More
