1 – Baiae Castle guided tour
From its strategic position, the castle dominates the bay of Pozzuoli. It represented an insurmountable barrier for anyone trying to gain access to the land from the coast. Indeed, it appears to be castle built with the purpose of defending the coast from Saracen attacks. Following a terrible eruption which occurred on a single night late in 1538 it was damaged; Baia Castle was not only a military structure; it was also representative of political and social gatherings, was where criminal verdicts were maliciously carried out and, in the 1800s, was where Garibaldi spent his holidays. As a result of World War I, the castle assumed the role of an orphanage to provide a home for the sons of those fallen. Mpe the Castle is a Museum who contain the ruins of the Ancient Baiae Underwater City.
