Photographer's Note

Ischia Ponte (once known as "Borgo Celsa") is first and foremost famous for its Aragonese castle and the fifteenth century Aragonese bridge which links the island to the mainland. The castle is built on a rocky promontory. Entrance is through a gallery carved from the rock, by order of Alfonso I of Aragon in 1447. In the small streets of this picturesque ancient fisher's village there are also many buildings from the Renaissance. Have as well a look at the fourteenth century cathedral which was rebuilt in the baroque style but is now a semi-ruin, and the former convent of the Poor Clares with the attached eighteenth Church dell'Immacolata.
