IL MONASTERO is located inside the Aragonese Castle of Ischia

Guests staying at IL MONASTERO have the opportunity to visit the Aragonese Castle: a walk through history that lasts almost 2 hours and offers a unique view of Ischia, the Gulf of Naples and the coasts of Campania and Lazio.

The Aragonese Castle stands on an islet of trachytic rock connected to the town of Ischia Ponte by a stone bridge; it has a maximum height of 113 metres above sea level and a total area of about 56,000 square metres.

Twenty-five centuries of history

A constant alternation of views of the island of Ischia and breathtaking views of the Gulf of Naples, lush nature, human events and architecture that seem to have been carved out of the volcanic rock.

A wonderful place to discover

More than 20 stops, including the church of the Immaculate, built in the 18th century in Baroque style; the convent of the Poor Clare nuns, founded in 1575, with the adjacent cemetery; the ruins of the cathedral dedicated to the Assumption; the crypt of St. Peter, with frescoed walls with paintings from the Giotto school of 1300.
