  • If you're in the area, drive than not unaware of this place over. Beautiful preserved medieval village that is built against the rock and is dominated by a castle ruin. Take a stroll through the village to hours.

  • A detour to do not to miss this site. Regarding me, I don't tire of it and does not lack a season to start a tour to see the progress of the work. Because if you are, like me, passionate about medieval times, you will find everything what you are looking for, be it the history of the site, know how artisans, different lifestyles, restoration techniques and a great motivation of any the site management team. Thanks to the entire team for these beautiful moments reminding us of medieval times and its real values!

  • So, as much as I would like to rate this higher, hard facts need to be told. (as of August 2016) The castle is in an extremely poor state, and, seeing as they are reconstructing it with medieval means, it will stay that way for many years to come, so I didn't think it was really that impressive. The view however, is definitely worth it (top of a cliff) , as long as you're not expecting to see even half a medieval castle still standing. THAT BEING SAID. The medieval village under the castle is definitely very impressive and there are some nice gift shops there, including a woodworker who does some interesting necklaces. (really, go and check it out) All in all its a very rustic place that fits in well with the medieval atmosphere, and even if the castle itself isn't too interesting, the village more than makes up for it.
  • The village is on a hill over looking a gorgeous valley, with a spectacular castle ruin on a cliff. The people are friendly and the historic plaques make for incredibly interesting reading. A great stop for everyone!
  • Nice historic place to see
  • Very beautiful village of Penne visited in July 2015 with all its small medieval streets. The old photos in the streets have interested me enormously. As the ruins interested not I have not visit the Castle (to each his tastes). If you're in the area don't miss this wonderful village if not you will have regrets thereafter.
