Castello di Donnafugata, Donnafugata

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. Castello di Donnafugata is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Donnafugata Edition.

  • Poorly maintained, falling plaster, furniture with holes, the gardens burned, shame because it might be cool but so is from the third world. for 8 euros each, which is not cheap saw the conservation status

  • Over a costly ticket of 8 euro and no audio guide, the grounds not treated, what about ... We will return again, although well appreciated would be a jewel for the city of Ragusa.

  • If you are on vacation in Sicily in Ragusa, one cannot make a stop at the castle of Donnafugata, a marvel that takes you back in time, too bad the Garden held in conditions of almost abandon.

  • Interesting castle and park. Both poorly maintained though and with little information in English. It featured, however, in Montalbano!
  • Such a beautiful place.
  • Full of a wonderful museum.
  • 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.
