  • I was on business in alcamo and I've been to the Castle! The castle of the counts of Modica is home to a nice Museum where cultural activities are handled; I loved the part dedicated to wine produced in alcamo and part of Sicilian puppets with their typical costumes. to visit!

  • To be honest the thing that struck me most favorably of Alcamo was the castle that towers over a square in the historical centre, however the imposing structure and excellent restoration work makes it definitely a sight to see too bad I could see inside due to the short time available

  • If that had been in the hands of the Americans they'd held open day and night, however I am not a little regret that was not well understood the value of this castle nestled inside the village. This is evident in the fact to find it closed to the public on Monday morning. Make it beautiful with a service worthy of so much beauty. Wake up aldermen to tourism!

  • Worthless
  • Square-shaped castle with four towers, two rectangular and two cylindrical. Originally sold by the Diocese of Monreale to the counts of Modica, former prison in ancient times, some cells still contain engravings of prisoners on the walls. Left abandoned for many years, until a few years ago. Underwent restoration with more or less intense external interventions (glazed Windows with pointed arches) and interiors. Very nice inner courtyard with stone staircase to access the upper floors. Often hosts exhibitions and events organised by the city. Half of tourists and newlyweds for photos. Absolutely worth a visit.

  • Castle of historical and artistic interest. We didn't get to visit it because it also closed public holidays of December. The amministrazions has managed to enhance it but the Castle needs to be open and available for tourists. It is located near the Center.

  • Beautiful at present finally l Department of the municipality of Alcamo has valued them as it deserves! born in Alcamo live in Emilia Romagna has always returned to leave not it seemed true that the ancient fortress and former prison 50 years finally had returned to its former glory! Congratulations x view has been the scene of wolves and the ancient topography of the city through the history I also recommend to Alcamo to inspect it and incentivize the municipality to do more and more x our jewels!
