Castel dell'Ovo, also known as Egg Castle, is a castle and an important landmark located on an islet in the Bay of Naples.

Its name comes from a legend about the Roman poet Virgil, who, in the Middle Ages, was regarded as a powerful sorcerer and was said to have placed an egg in the castle's fortifications to make them stronger.[1]

The original edifice was a fortified villa where the last Roman Emperor, Romulus Augustus, was exiled in 476.[1]

History

In the Renaissance, a drydock was located nearby which housed Cesare Borgia's naval cannon, but in 1502, the Assassin Ezio Auditore destroyed the only prototype of the vehicle.[2]
