Lovely Castle

Not sure of the history behind the castle but it is fairly easy to find (Largo Castello in Acaya (Acaia)) and fun to explore. A few restaurants close-by.

We arrived here by coincidence and we have been lucky. There was a nice exibition over Ancient Roca, but the Castle itself is for sure worth visiting. I have been facinated by the underground space with great acustics.

Thank ElenaEindhoven
