This castle is filled with beautiful art. When we visited it it had both Renaissance art, forms of art painted on walls that I had not seen anywhere else in Italy, and a modern art display. The town of Venafro is a hidden gem.

Since I was the only tourist there, I have a private tour of Castello Pandone Venafro. It's well worth the visit if you're in Venafro. However, since every medieval Italian town has a castle. I wouldn't go out of my way to see it.
