Castle of L'Aquila

Interesting
Built by Pirro Luigi Escribà (who also designed Castel Sant'Elmo in Naples), this square fortress is reinforced with powerful bastions. Prior to the earthquake, its vast rooms housed the National museum of the Abruzzo which exhibited interesting vestiges of the Abruzzo dating from the Roman era and a section devoted to religious art.
