Castle Tourist Spot
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.

  • Kudos to the staff that enhances and holds the redevelopment of the Castle. Driving Mr. Francis Savoyard, thoroughly trained, explained many things without boring but passionate in uncovering secrets, mysteries, history and wonders. The Lady at the ticket booth. The ticket price is negligible, however, are well spent because they go into maintenance. The castle that say .... it is beautiful in every angle, soars from the country and how to enter is like stepping into the middle ages. Breathtaking panorama. Interesting exhibitions that are organized. Congratulations to Caccamo, keep it up.

  • Wonderful medieval castle, one of the largest in Italy and Europe, very cared for both the exterior and the Interior, special attention should be paid to Mr. Francis and Enza for their kindness and competence, in particular Mr. Francis, who with his precious and detailed guide has catapulted us in an atmosphere of the era. A great pity that it is not highly advertised nor entered into a cultural and historical learning path.

  • 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.
