The modern structure of the castle is due to Alfonso V d’Aragona who built a wooden bridge to reach the islet and built other walls and fortifications while inside were made the royal quarters and those for courtiers, troops and servants.   Since 1912 the Aragonese Castle is privately owned, it is therefore one of the few examples in Italy of a private monument that finances itself.

A legend tells that the name Procida derives from Greek prochetai “prochetai” that means lies; in fact, if you look carefully at the morphology of the island you can see that it seems to lie down in the sea. Another legend tells the name derives from a nurse of Aeneas named Procida, who was buried there.
