Castello di Donnafugata, Donnafugata
Categories: Castles, Tourist Spots
Dating back to the 1400s, Castello di Donnafugata is more a sumptuous noble house than a castle. After many years of neglect, the province of Ragusa purchased the house in 1982, and it has now been restored and made accessible to the public. The 20 open rooms, each with a particular purpose and style, still contain their original furnishings, which mainly date back to the 18th century. Explore the monumental park in which the house is situated, seeking out the artificial caves, the stone labyrinth, and other features built for the entertainment of guests. Plan your visit to Castello di Donnafugata and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Donnafugata holiday planner.

Un bellissimo castello a pochi km da Ragusa. Ristrutturato molto bene, quasi interamente visitabile, ho potuto vedere anche una interessante mostra di abiti dell'Ottocento.

Refurbished very well, almost entirely visitable, I could also see an interesting exhibition of clothes of the nineteenth century. A gem is the huge garden, really impressive.

nice castle, with a beautiful garden. there is also a maze
Lovely building near Ragusa - used in Montalbano several times and well worth a visit.
Renato PacificoUnfortunately my experience was not good. Since having visited twice they still managed to get into the famous balcony. Once many years ago because it was closed for restoration and another as a cabbie paid off in 2015.show original
Isa HzDisappointing experience. We arrived an hour before closing and they told us that only we could visit the Castle, which we gave no time to garden. We got to the first floor and visited it in 15 minutes, few rooms, that Yes well furnished and with exposed time dresses. We went down to the ground floor and already the visit was over and we were closing the doors back. We asked if we could go to the balcony of the main facade and they told us that they were already closing, although it was missing half an hour to close. Very unpleasant because a couple of Italians that he would forward it to let them. Unpleasant tort as didn't have probably the same rhetorical ability since I speak Italian, but not with both domain. The enclosure appears to a theme park and the very disappointing attendance. 4 persons €18, 15 minutes. The cows of the entry are precious. Family of Barcelona (Spain)show original
Anna la rosaThe castle is well maintained, the clothes are really beautiful ... just wish the 122 rooms of the Castle you can visit only 22.show original
