Dragonara Castle (Italy)

Liguria     See list of castles in Italia

Built in the thirteenth century, Castel Dragone, also called Castello della Dragonara, a popular definition deriving from the term "Dragonaria" which means "vortex of storm air" to indicate the particular position overlooking the sea often exposed to storms and storms, overlooks the most extreme part of Camogli, in the province of Genoa, offering wonderful views.

Built as a watchtower to defend the ancient village and the surrounding stretch of coast from the raids of Saracen pirates, it has a terrace with a very suggestive view of the sea and the town.

At the entrance of the castle there is the clearing where there are two cannons of the '500, a period in which the defensive function of the castle was increased.
Today it hosts exhibitions and displays.
