  • spectacular location but property in neglect. Sin have been invested so much money to facilitate access, but the elevator is out of order and you can't visit.

  • The highest point in the town of Cortona, is this fortress. To enter you have to go from the ticket office (5.00 euro per person) ... There is no real percorso...si salt and you cross completely unadorned rooms and often used as deposit (in one there were a professorship and two banks) ... When you finish the tour remains somewhat disappointed x which is not worth entering unless you want to contribute to the maintenance of the same!

  • I cannot give this a higher rating because the site is closed currently for renovation. The fort is awesome perched ontop of hill above Cortona. You can drive to the site and then enjoy great views of surrounding area from high atop the hilltop. The church on site is also very nice to visit. This is a church used everyday so please respect the locals using the church. At 8am each morning a singing nun sings the prayers. Be sure to arrive early to not interupt the service.
  • Beautiful partially restored fortress with a winding, fascinating history. Note: closed for the winter after October, you can only walk around the outside, which is still nice and an incredible view
  • It's a bit of a track up the hill to get there but worth it. The views are amazing. It cost 6 euro for adults and 3 for kids and has a number of photo exists but the fortress is very good and has very good views around the area.
  • Simply the best views of the surrounding area, pure beauty. Also if zombie apocalypse happens I would go here
  • Nice view from the top! The exhibition is a bit expensive but you have to pay for it if you want to go into the fortress
