Castello di Caccamo, Caccamo

Stroll through the halls of history at Castello di Caccamo, one of Sicily's most outstanding medieval monuments. The castle, perched on a cliff overlooking the scenic town of Caccamo, dates back to the 12th century, when it was built by the island's Norman conquerors. One of the largest castles in Italy, it's now fully restored to its former glory after decades of work. Explore everything from the noblemen's chambers to the servants' quarters, and stop by the armory that holds authentic weaponry and pieces of armor. You can opt to take a guided tour of the castle, and the ground-floor restaurant lets you enjoy a meal in the historic setting.

    A charming place, on a promontory is visible a breathtaking, with Lake Rosamarina. Impressive prisons, with graffiti walls and chains still anchored to the walls. Beautiful nineteenth-century clothes and the Museum of arms. We even found a knife from the island of Java (in C). The only down fall and that in the face of a ticket, there is a guide that illustrates the wonders of the place. You might think about 2 guides that start of visits by grouping visitors every 40-45 minutes. It would be perfect.

    Fantastic Castle, quaint, we were enchanted by the Majesty and how it is held especially. The Guide Cettina is really on the ball, we did see everything in a different light! Not to be missed!

  • Excellent castle and exhibits of weapons from all eras. Kids loved it particularly the trap door
  • Castle was very nice, but needs more information in other languages. Admission price was too steep for lack of information. Not allowed to keep the printed booklet...
  • Well preserved castle. Cheap to enter and they let you walk at your own pace. Don't miss the 20 cent espresso machine!
  • Very nice castle. Very well preserved. Definetly recommend visiting
  • Awesome castle with a great view of the valley/basin below. Our kids loved it! Extremely well preserved and displayed a lot of history on the inside.
