Campobasso is a city of many surprises. There are several tourist attractions in Campobasso, the main Monteforte is the Castle, built in 1459, whose present appearance is not much different from the original one: a structure that stands isolated, with mainly defensive attitude, not with a stately and style mainly belonging to the Middle Ages. Nearby Campobasso find some nice little villages and sights, such as Ferrazzano with its namesake castle, or the ancient Baranello, heir of Samnite Vairanum. Campobasso is also a stone’s throw from the mountain and the sea, the first is reached by the ski resorts of Capracotta, Campitello Matese and Roccaraso, the second you arrive at a short distance to Termoli, Monterosso, and the beautiful islands.
