Muro Lucano - The Castle

Info
Via Castello
85054 Muro Lucano (PZ)
The castle is private and not open to the public.

From the top of the hill where it was built, the Castle overlooks the village.

It dates back to the IX-X centuries and was changed several times because of the earthquakes that have devastated the area.

The manor was particularly damaged by the disastrous earthquake of 1980.

Its structure is therefore a combination of shapes and styles that show the several renovation works.

Only the tower and some parts of the walls are original. A sad and distressing event has characterised the fame of this place where, in 1382, Giovanna d’Anjou, Queen of Naples, was killed.
