"The castle, which stands on a volcanic rock, was built by Hiero I of Syracuse in 474 BC. In 326 BC the fortress was captured by Romans. In 1441, Alfonso V of Aragon connected the rock to the island with a stone bridge instead of the prior wood bridge, and fortified the walls in order to defend the inhabitants against the raids of pirates."
