  • The Castle (beautiful) is not that great and some of the rooms have been refurbished but in a modern style and without trying to resume the old salt. The view is splendid and sympathetic Guide. Only 3 stars are also due to the fact that the elevator crashed, the Guide has had to run (after 10 minutes) to try to fix it (and never returned) and we had to walk down a steep path that arrived as well away from the entrance. We were refunded 50% of the ticket but I'm not mad at the guys who have done everything but, on Sunday, a aider could stay on site (also because I knew that failures are there). The property. the Diocese of Acireale, more could be done.

  • 24 euros for 25/30 minutes. The castle became simply a location for events for a fee. Too modern too renovated little to see. The guided tour paid full-time as a virtually non-existent, some informational sign in front of the doors. On the other hand there are some great views but in Sicily you have in as many free seats.

  • We were there on a Sunday afternoon to visit the Castle, and it was interesting and enjoyable. To greet us at the top there was a very helpful guy who gave us a mini tour through the various areas. If the castle itself and the visit has been a great experience, everything else was a disaster. 1. the days and hours of operation are not published anywhere. Are not correct those appearing on Google, nor those on the website. The answer is that the site is owned by the old management (that is, a historic castle is like a local and passes from hand to hand?!). Either way you can detect a previous website or we can build a new one. It goes without saying that the telephone numbers found on the old website are two phones always disconnected. Last but not least, in complete despair, you might as well hang a sheet of paper to the gate with the schedules and a telephone ... obviously doesn't happen either. 2. To take the mini rack you pay a high enough price (€ 7) and incredibilemte to be in 2016, it is not possible to pay with debit/credit card. 3. If the remains of the Castle appear in all their beauty, another wing is visible neglect, with the remains of a bar which when opened could also be beautiful as well as functional. Filled bottles in half, abandoned glasses on the counter, dust everywhere ... but it takes so long to empty the local, rather than hold a havoc on display? In short, yet another monument in pseudo abandonment do-it-yourselfer. Too bad, because maybe if the staff had the tools to work decently, the experience would be worth. Board of tempting fate by going to mid-morning or mid-afternoon, or risk finding closed. Otherwise wait until someone comes ...

  • Suggestive site where you can enjoy a magnificent panorama. You get in the elevator. As soon as you get off you will welcome the staff who will be engaging guides towards the explanation of the Castle and its many conquerors. Go in the late afternoon if you can. Guests can enjoy views over the Bay below that alone is worth the price of admission!

  • Is located on the northern edge of the province 220 metres a.s.l., Etna on a high hill overlooking the Eastern access of the Alcantara Valley. Here the river Per qantar (name of Arabic origin meaning "the bridge") marks the boundary between the provinces of Catania and Messina.

  • This morning we decided to finally go and see this castle ... then we prepare, consult the internet site to check schedules and costs ... and away we start ... only that we get there we find that unlike what is stated on the site, the castle is closed. .. maybe opens in the afternoon (you can tell by a sign on the working time of employees). I still can't say it explicitly, I am also an employee, but my patience towards civil servants has found another topic to thin ...
