The first mention of the imposing fortified structure which dominates the city of Naples from high on the nearby hills dates from 1275 when the fortress was the seat of the family of King Charles of Angiò. In 1329 Robert of Angiò decided to enlarge the fortification and commissioned the Senese architect Tino di Camaiano to head the project. Between 1537 and 1547 the castle was reconstructed by the viceroy Don Pedro of Toledo and here it took its particular star shaped structure with six points. It became a compact and strong castle which protected the city under the auspicies of Pedro Luis Escrivà of Valencia, one of the periods most noted military architects. In 1604 the structure began life as a prison for political prisoners and, afterwards, as a prison for military prisoners until 1952. In 1976 rebuilding began which lasted seven years so that today the original structure is again visible. Today, the Castle of Saint Elmo is a multifunctional centre offering  art exhibitions, shows, concerts and a conference centre. For these and other functions the castle is particularly well suited as it offers breathtaking views of the city and Bay of Naples.
