Bourtzi Castle

Cds IMG 5669

Bourtzi Castle is a lovely Venetian fortress in Naplio harbour. It was built in the 1400’s and was initially a prison and home of the chief executioner, and in the 1970’s it was a hotel, but now you can only go there for day visits. It’s lovely to look at from Naples harbour, and at night the whole island is lit up.
