Aerial view of Melfi Castle: four historical entrances and Norman-Sveva architecture

Aerial photography of Melfi Castle, medieval fortress built by the Normans in the 11th century. The castle has four historical entrances, of which only one is currently accessible. The first entrance to the north-east, near the Tower Parvula, and the second to the Tower of the Church are walled. The third entrance to the south-west, near the Baluardo del Leone, was the main entrance in the Angevin era. The only active entrance, opened by the Doria family, allows access to the village through a bridge. Despite the transformations of the 16th-XVIII century, the castle preserves Norman-Svevi elements.
