Castello Eurialo

Castello Eurialo


Belvedere, Italy (IT)
The impressive fortress was built by Voluto da Dionigi the Great in 402 B.C. to fend off an impending attack by the Carthaginians.

The castle, grounds and walls, cover a good 27 kilometers.

It represents the most majestic fortified castle in all the antique world. Surprisingly, it was built in only 6 years.

This would seem fairly impossible in view of the moats and underground tunnels , the powerful walls, the enormity of the structure.

The complexity of the ancient architecture and the breathtaking scenery of the surroundings make an excursion to the castle a definite must.
