This medieval castle was built in the seventh century on command of the Lombard Prince Arechi II who moved the capital of the Dukedom from Benevento to Salerno. The castle still holds its Roman and Byzantine charm and perhaps the most bewitching feature of the castle is the views it affords. There is an in-house permanent exhibition of ceramics, coins and other artefacts from that period. A lot of tourists prefer to walk up to the castle which is a 45 minutes uphill trek.

Great views over Salerno and the coast. Catch the no 19 bus to get there. If you choose to walk back down wear good shoes, the path is steep and not well maintained.
Great views from the castle, took a taxi from the Duomo di Salerno (Cathedral of Saint Matthew), cost was €11.60 up and €18 back down. Did not have the taxi wait, ordered one when we were ready to leave (be aware, taxis start meter from when they get the call in Italy). €30 round trip for some nice views and memories, did not pay the extra €4 to enter based on reviews here.
My wife and I visited the castle. Unfortunately it was closed. We toured it from outside. Great view
We took an astonishing walk up the stairs in the forest. Even though the beginning of the stairs was hard to find, the walk was very picteresque. The castle itself was surprisingly big with some exibitions and nice sights. There's a proper cafe at the location, yet only cash is accepted.
We walked up the hill. Lovely walk and there are great walks from the castle. The castle itself is nothing special. If you want to know about it's history you need to research it.
