One of the few images of the castle. This photo postcard shows the remnants of the Castel del Carmine, shortly before its final demolition in 1906. Still visible are sections of the Aragonese wall facing the sea and one of the rounded Aragonese towers. In background rises the tower of Sta. Maria del Carmine.
Naples, Castel del Carmine. This was built as a tower under Charles III of Durazzo in 1382, expanded in 1386 under Louis of Anjou and again by Ferdinand I in 1484. It was nearly destroyed in a flood in 1456. It was demolished in 1906.
