  • A large fortified castle that dominates the town and the territory. Superb view of the Umbrian Valley until Spoleto. The male, perhaps the oldest, visible from afar and stands as a Sentinel.

  • I left an afternoon to visit this site it is a must to have an idea of the panorama of the city of Assisi and surroundings. The walk is great and allows us to take beautiful photos of the landscapes. The remains of the fortress give dimension than was a fortification at the time. Not to mention the various steps that you have to climb to reach the top! Not to be missed!

  • The views here are spectacular. I've seen several places in Italy but Assisi was always so special to me because it's a pleasant surprise and every bit as beautiful as Tuscany.
  • This is a must visit when you are at Assisi. Go to the top of the castle to appreciate the amazing beauty of Assisi. The castle itself is a beauty.
  • Beautiful vistas, small but interesting museum consisting mainly of costumes and weapons from the middle ages, as well as pictures from reenactments.
  • Great castle. Buy the cheaper ticket and see everything in the castle. The more expensive ticket is for an other location as well. The castle has great views.
  • The views are insanely beautiful, and the fortress itself is interesting. The site could have better information. It starts out well with a couple of large intimation panels, but that's about it.
