Castel dell' Ovo in Naples
This monumental complex was built on the islet of Megaride in the Bay of Naples. It is said that in the 7th century BC the Greeks founders of the city of Partenope landed here. They say the name comes from the egg that Virgil brought in his clothes.
No ilhéu Megaride da baía de Nápoles construíram este complexo monumental. No séc. VII aC terão aqui desembarcado os Gregos fundadores da cidade de Parténope. Atribuem o seu nome ao ovo que Virgílio trazia nas suas vestes.
