In the castle of Taranto


Taranto, overlooking the Gulf of the Ionian Sea, is called “the city of two seas” because it is placed between the Mar Grande and Mar Piccolo. It is a city of nobly born. The Greek Taras was a metropolis, and when it passed to the Romans, with the name of Tarentum, became smaller. Its symbolic monument is the Aragonese Castle - designed by the Renaissance architect Francesco di Giorgio Martini – to protect the old part of the city. The museum inside the Castle reveals many surprises.
