Built in 1450, you can walk up from the city center and entry is free. Commanding views of the surrounding area and the city, well worth 2-3 hours of wandering around and exploring.

The castle is well worth visiting especially with a guide to tell more of the history of the city of Campobasso and the castle itself. Having been built on top of the hill, the castle overlooks the city and surrounding areas and offers a fantastic...More

We walked up to this castle overlooking Campobasso in the heat only to see there is parking right outside the castle! The entrance is free and the views excellent. There is not a lot to see from a historical perspective but worth a visit anyway...More

If you're in Campobasso and are able to climb, walk/climb stairs from the historic center to the top of the mountain. If not, drive. Either way, it's worth a visit even from the parking area at the castle. If you are able to walk, it's...More

Interesting castle, the symbol of campobasso city. The medieval castle is on the hill above the city and dominates all the city and the countryside around campobasso. I have been there many times. It's well kept, outside and inside. It's close to the city centre,...More

We visited at Castel Monforte. It is easy to go by car. Not much to see there. Historical castle. Do not go if you have to walk.
