There is exhibition of Joan Miro in the Castle, 6 euro per person, but opened only rooms on first floor, the top of the Castle is closed 😥, we can't see beautiful view on harbour, and ground floor also closed ☹️

This had a Miro exhibition when I visited which was fantastic! The Castello has a superb location overlooking the port.

You are no longer able to walk to the top of the Castle to get the panorama. It is cordoned off with no signs saying this is the case. Very disappointing. We were charged 6euro each as there was an art exhibition of Joan Miro...More

This castle is well-preserved, and typical of many medieval Italian examples. It comes to life with a good exhibition - ours was a Joan Miro one. Go if there’s something on.

Nice small castle from outside, when we arrived it was closed. Very nice sea view. Very relaxing experience, overall the visit in Monopoli.

As far as castles go, this one’s interior stonework has been restored nicely. However there are no artifacts inside, it’s totally empty and virtually no history or explanations. Just a short placard outside. The views of the Adriatic are grand.

We went in for a photo exhibition, the castle doesn't have much inside left of interest but the panoramic view from the roof is a must see.

Walking around the old walls you arrive at this majestic castle around the old harbour It seems like I had many uses over the years and is now enjoying some restoration

Amazing old historic Castle with views over the water and town. Easy walk in, up and around and it's free.
