#1 of 6 in Things to do in 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.

  • with an excellent level of conservation, imposing more than it may seem from the outside, the Castle preserves the fascination of these places of other times that resist the passing of the years. Several rooms, which accommodate armor, weapons, period furnishings, and a similar environments to enhance even more, with panoramic terraces, stairs, passages etc to follow even the videos that explain the history of the Castle over the centuries. To photograph the views and the sheer drop over the atmosphere of the halls remain today as they were hundreds of years ago ...

  • Imposing castle with beautiful walls. The property is worth a visit because well preserved, although lacking in furnishings. The staff at the entrance are friendly and willing to give advice for visiting.

  • Fascinating old castle built on top of a cliff. Good displays and great views from the balconies. Notations in Italian and English. 4 Euro entrance fee.
  • Beautiful and well kept castle. I can see that there would definitely be a struggle to find parking during tourist season, but it is well worth a visit. It has a great view of the valley! Also, the restaurant right by it (A Castello) is very delicious (they have great pastas!).
  • A beautiful and well kept building but you will struggle to find it open as the hours seem sporadic at the best of times.
  • Very nice castle. Hard to find parking. Week worth a deviation from the highway
  • Excellent castle and exhibits of weapons from all eras. Kids loved it particularly the trap door
