Castel dell'Ovo (Castle of the Egg)

Castel dell'Ovo (Egg Castle) is a fortified castle perched in the Bay of Naples. Built on the small island of Megaride, it is now connected to the mainland by a causeway. The site was originally settled by Greek colonists in the 6th century BC. Then the ancient Romans built a villa, finally exiling the last western Roman emperor here in the 5th century AD. After that it became a monastery, then was destroyed before a castle was built by the Normans in the 12th century. The current castle was built in the 15th century. The name come s from the legend that the Roman poet Virgil buried an egg on the site for protection.

These days the castle contains the Museum of Prehistory and is also used for events and exhibitions. You can wander the rooms and admire the wonderful views from the towers. A fishing village grew up around the base of the castle in the 19th century, Borgo Marinari, which is now known for its restaurants and marina.
