We were told by a local guide to just drive by the castle as the inside was a bit shabby and not worth stopping. Thankfully we decided to stop. The setting is spectacular and it's easy to see why movies would be made here. Because...More

We had a private taxi tour from Ragusa which gave us the ability to do our own thing and not be tied to the local bus and train. A nice journey through the lovely Sicilian countryside on deserted roads. The historic and tranquil castle is...More

Certainly worth the visit if you're in SE Sicily. The castle grounds are a bit "under-gardened" but one can imagine how fancy the place was once when the money was flush. Some good exhibits in the castle about the family that once lived there, and...More
