Title: Castello Nuovo, castle Nuovo, (New s:"castle"), landmark, Turret, Tower, mansion, palace, building

Notes: The s:"castle" was built between 1279 and 1282 by order of Charles I of Anjou. It was called the "new" s:"castle" after extensive renovations commissioned by Alfonso of Aragon, following his victory over the French. The marble entrance arch of the s:"castle" is of interest: numerous artists participated in creating this celebratory declaration of the Aragonese victory. Within the s:"castle" are housed the Neapolitan Society of National History (founded in 1875), possessing roughly 170 thousand volumes, drawings, prints, and manuscripts; and also the Civic Museum, which houses a rich collection of art works originally in Neapolitan churches.
