A small but amazing piece of Campobasso's history! We stumbled upon the castle which had beautiful views of the rest of the city. A must see when visiting Campobasso.

Built in 1450, you can walk up from the city center and entry is free. Commanding views of the surrounding area and the city, well worth 2-3 hours of wandering around and exploring.

If you're in Campobasso and are able to climb, walk/climb stairs from the historic center to the top of the mountain. If not, drive. Either way, it's worth a visit even from the parking area at the castle. If you are able to walk, it's...More

You will see the Castel Monforte from just about every location in Campobasso, so imagine the views when you go up to it. There is a road that takes you to the top, I suggest you walk through the old town if your up to...More
