  • The castle always makes its figure, especially when it is used for recreational activities. Today and tomorrow (9 and 10 November) there will be "The Puppet Castle" (figure theatre festival), with workshops and children's shows. We just came back satisfied: the guys at the Maruca Theatre in Crotone were really good. The labs for my 4-year-old. Today's show, Puppet Show was cute, interactive, but I imagined better (maybe tomorrow's Pinocchio show will be nicer). Enjoyed the magic show and the path to do with the chosen puppet. Positive experience.

  • The Castle is placed at the highest point of Cosenza and allows a 360-degree view of the city and surrounding territory. It is accessed starting from the city center through the beautiful and characteristic streets of Old Cosenza proceeding uphill for a few kilometers so it is advisable to use comfortable shoes. For those arriving by car there is a small free parking space with abusive parking. Admission at 4th right price. Restoration carried out by highlighting the cracks caused by the earthquake. Castle with different styles, started in 937 DC, then modernized by caliph Saracen Cayti. In the Norman period expanded, then destroyed by the earthquake of 1184. Frederick II of Svevia renovated it by building its characteristic Octagonal Towers, now only one is visible, the others destroyed by subsequent earthquakes in 1638. Restored by the Angioini, earthquake, mint and prison with the Bourbons, earthquake, diocesan seminary, earthquake 1870, today museum.... bookshop, café bar, Well made the illustrative leaflet.
