THE HISTORICAL CENTRE & THE ARAGONESE CASTLE OF ISCHIA TOUR
On a small atoll surfaced from the Tyrrhenian Sea, very close to the coast, stands the marvelous Aragonese Castle of Ischia, island of the Neapolitan flegrean archipelago. The tidal island of trachitic rock on the eastern side is connected to the island by a masonry bridge of about 220 m that led directly inside the ancient village of Celsa, today known as Ischia Ponte. Geologically, the islet, where the Aragonese Castle stands, is a bubble of magma derived from a syntactic eruption that occurred over 300 thousand years ago, and over time it has been consolidated thanks to further eruptive phenomena, giving life to the phenomenon known as the stagnation dome. The fascinating Aragonese Castle is the favorite destination of tourists from all over the world who, especially in summer, almost take the island of Ischia by storm, populating it with colors and noise. The Aragonese Castle in reality, a fortress excavated between the rocks and planted on the waves of the sea, was built by Alfonso V of Aragon towards the middle of the fifteenth century and was accessed through a tunnel; before the fortification was built on the islet, it could only be accessed by sea. The suggestive tunnel is about 400 m long and the whole path is illuminated by high skylights that in the past served as "piombatoi" through which soldiers dropped boiling oil or stones to defend the castle from enemies' assaults; the next stretch is a mule track that climbs uphill to the island's peak in the sunlight, from this road the minor paths branch off to gardens and other buildings.
