It is a beautiful medieval castle in the heart of Pulsano. Ancient and historical rich in nineteenth-century rooms and atmospheres. Nice to visit. Last year and this year there was the market, the Santa Claus village and the chocolate factory. We brought the kids who had a lot of fun. All beautiful.

In the center of the town of Pulsano this castle entirely made with the Campano deserves a view especially on hot summer nights

Built in Carparo in the middle of the fifteenth century it is located in the center of the municipality of Pulsano. It has a quadrangular plan and five different towers, and three floors. Unlike the classic medieval castles, it has neither the moat nor the bridge and is heavily incorporated into the local housing structures. The atmosphere that one breathes in its interior, is that typical of historical places full of history and, like to think, of so many secrets.

Odeon of Herodes Atticus

The Odeon of Herodes Atticus is a stone theatre structure located on the southwest slope of the Acropolis of Athens. It was built in 161 AD by the Athenian magnate Herodes Atticus in memory of his wife, Aspasia Annia Regilla. It was originally a steep-sloped theater with a three-story stone front wall and a wooden roof made of expensive cedar of Lebanon timber. It was used as a venue for music concerts with a capacity of 5,000. It lasted intact until it was destroyed and left in ruins by the Heruli in 267 AD.

The audience stands and the orchestra (stage) were restored using Pentelic marble in the 1950s. Since then it has been the main venue of the Athens Festival, which runs from May through October each year, featuring a variety of acclaimed Greek as well as International performances.
