Castel dell’Ovo (The Egg Castle) has a very rich Medieval history. We might say that it is one of the symbols of it’s very beginnings.

On this site was a castle where Romulus Augustus, the last western Roman emperor, was exiled in 476. Roman foundations are still under current walls. Legend has it that Virgil placed a magical egg in the foundations - if it broke, the castle would crumble to pieces, and Naples would fall - hence the name. 

After the Roman era, the castle was raided by Saracens and rebuilt by Roger the Norman.
