Aragonese Castle

The Aragonese Castle (Castello Aragonese, Ischia Ponte) was built on a rock near the island in 474 BC, by Hiero I of Syracuse. At the same time, two towers were built to control enemy fleets' movements. The rock was then occupied by Parthenopeans (the ancient inhabitants of Naples). In 326 BC the fortress was captured by Romans, and then again by the Parthenopeans.

The gardens of La Mortella , located in Forio-San Francesco, were originally the property of English composer William Walton.

Giardini Ravino is a botanical garden with one of the richest collection of cacti and succulents cultivated outdoors in Europe.
