Castle
“The "Norman Swabian Castle of Nicastro" is located on the hill of San Teodoro, overlooking Nicastro. The Castle is today an ensemble of ruins occupying the summit of a hill 320 metres high. It was built, according to some scholars, by the Bruttii or by Greeks colonists. The current structure dates probably from the Norman domination, although some structure existed at the time of the Ostrogoth king Teia. In 1122 Pope Callixtus II resided here for 15 days. Later, the castle was enlarged by Constance of Hauteville and his son Frederick II, as well as by the Angevines. The castle was heavily damaged by the earthquakes of 1609, 1638 and 1783, and subsequently abandoned.”
