MaschioAngioino, or CastleNuovo, is a castle in the city of Naples, Italy.
The foundation of the castle was laid in the thirteenth century; it was called ‘Nuovo’ so that it could be distinct from the other castles and was named Maschio Angioino in honour of Charles of Anjou. The Castle has also been the site of many historicalevents.
One of the finest elements in the castle is the TriumphalArch, regarded to be among the most spectacular works of the Renaissance honorary architecture. It is a complex structure made up of white columns and decorated with statues.
Also worth visiting are the PalatineChapel, CivicMuseum and Baron’sHall, all contained within the castle complex.
The Civic Museum consists of sculptures and small frescoes from the fourteenth century. The silver exhibits and the paintings in the BarbaraHall are a treat to the eyes.
