Visiting the beautifully restored medieval Aragonese castle in La Castella whose history goes back to the last years of the Second Punic War, between 208 and 202 BCE, which was when Hannibal, who had been pressed by the Roman armies and forced to a sudden return home, had built a fortified lookout tower there on the rocky shore of the Ionian Sea.
