Military fortress

The Castle of Belvedere Marittimo has been originally built by Normans , around the 11th century, to be a military outpost. Its location was perfect to have a 360 degrees view of the coast, which was the main door for enemies to enter this area.

Only under Aragonese domination this building became a proper castle at the end of 15th century.

The castle of Belvedere Marittimo is a great place to observe the towers, the fortifications and the bastions that have been decorated by many different hands belonging to different socio-cultural backgrounds.
