Fodor's Review

The easily distinguishable and now abandoned Palazzo d'Avalos, built at the same time—confusingly, sometimes called Palazzo Reale or Il Castello—was the 17th-century residence of Innico d'Avalos, cardinal and mayor of Procida, and used as a prison from the 1830s until 1987. Rumor has it that its inmates were a little miffed at having to abandon the sun-drenched island of Procida. Now it is for sale for a cool €28 million.
