San Marino Chamber Choir performs at Sala dei Baroni inside Castel Nuovo in Naples on Wednesday, April 6 at 8 PM

Here is another concert venue of the San Marino Chamber Choir 2011 Performance Tour (April 6, 8:00 PM): the Sala dei Baroni inside Castel Nuovo (commonly known as Maschio Angioino), a very old and beautiful castle in the city of Naples. This imposing castle, surrounded by deep moats, was built in 1282 by Pierre de Chaulnes and Pierre d'Angincourt, the architects of Charles I of Anjou. It was modeled on the castle at Angers. A remarkable triumphal arc embellishes the entrances on the town side. This masterpiece bearing sculptures to the glory of the House of Aragon, was built to designs by Francesco Laurana in 1467. Access to the Sala dei Baroni is via the staircase in the inner courtyard (at the far end on the left).
