Rapallo castle – one of the symbols of the city – is located at the eastern end of the waterfront promenade Vittorio Veneto. It was built in 1550 for defensive purposes after the looting and destruction of the town by the pirate Dragut, who enslaved many people. Used for a long time as a prison it was restored and is now a prestigious venue for exhibitions and conferences. ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น #rapallo #liguria #italia #verytroubledchild
