  • This is an extraordinary review, even for me. We had been visiting this nice little town which has got an award being the nicest among the "piccoli borghi". In fact, it is nice but, unfortunately, we ...  more »
  • If it had been opened we could visit inside. We were three groups of tourists in front of the closed gate. But you can not open on a public holiday? From the outside the place looks cute though it seems forgotten.

  • Remains in poor condition of ancient stronghold of sandstone known as "Castrum Leonis", probably dating to the period of Norman/Swabian. Dominates the Valley of Alcantara, the town of Castiglione di Sicilia and the northern slope of Etna, so the scenery is really secured. In the upper part of the structure is a local said Salazar, who is believed to be the Mint where they coined the coins. Today it is home to the regional Enoteca where you expose typical Sicilian wines. Wear comfortable shoes for the climb and possibly even slip. I don't recommend the climb to those who have difficulty walking. There is no alternative route for anyone who is in a wheelchair. Free admission. Structure is not valued.

  • A disappointment. The Castle will be certainly very nice, but, as happens frequently, was closed. Our fault that we work and we would like to see the beautiful places of Sicily holidays. So we stuck to only see the outside and went to spend the day elsewhere.

  • Beautiful castle named "Castrum Leonis" from which is offered a splendid view over most of the Alcantara Valley and across the northern slope of Etna. Also home to the regional enoteca, admission free.
