Fascinating place to visit even though there was torrential rain and a thunderstorm while we were there! Castel Sant'Elmo is an amazing historic building with a very impressive entry gate - a hexagonal medieval fortress built from volcanic tufa on the hilltop overlooking Naples not the seaside castle - Castel dell'Ovo - which I think is the one currently shown in the photo!. Some of the rooms within the castle are used as administration offices so are not open to the public but there is a restored church and an interesting art gallery in the parade quadrangle at the top and the view from the walkways and parapets would be excellent on a clear day. Well worth a visit. We enjoyed ours.
