The castle's courtyard is very pleasant with Romeo and Juliet like balconies. In summer the castle courtyard hosts cultural events and the castle has occasional art exhibitions.

The courtyard of the castle is simply stunning, I have also visited this area at different times of the year and the way the sunlight shines through the trees is simply mesmerising. Carovigno is a wonderful town and definitely worth visiting!!
