Castel dell'Ovo

Castel dell'Ovo (in Italian, Egg Castle) is one of the elements that towers above the panorama of the Gulf of Naples.
Its name stems from a medieval legend which holds that the poet Virgil, who developed a medieval reputation as a great sorcerer, had a magical egg put in the foundations to support them.

The castle rises on an islet connected to the city by a small causeway. The current shapes of Castel dell' Ovo derive from the restoration of 1503; in the 19th century a small fishing village (Borgo Marinari) sprung-up around the eastern wall of the castle. This village still stands and it is now more known for its marina and several fine restaurants. The castle is open: in the huge rooms there are often art exhibitions and conventions; its evocative position allows the people who visit it to enjoy a charming sight of the gulf of Naples.
