Castello di Donnafugata, Donnafugata

(3.6/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The castle itself to the outside is worth the visit, charge admission to see it inside I don't think. The current state of affairs fails to convey her potential grandeur and beauty.

  • Mainly nineteenth century interiors which have been neglected and show the ravages of damp and dirt. Impressive castle walls.  more »
  • The beauty of the Castle, the great exhibition, which shows an excellent level of care and preparation technique and artistry, the wealth of detail make it a place where daydreaming.

  • Bella struttura architettonica con possibilità di visita interna con stanze ed arredi in ottime condizioni risalenti lla prima meta ottocento
  • 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.
  • Wonderful Castle of irresistible charm, especially on a hot day, but suckers. Lovely antique paintings and furniture inside explained in exhaustive cartels. Information can also be found in certain paintings poems or lines of tales that are as as a portal for access to past times. Out a beautiful garden: you may want to get lost in a maze and/or hop on one of the observation towers. At the end of the tour you can also have lunch in one of the many cafes nearby. Definitely recommended!

  • Former farmhouse "dress" from the last owner was his country house. Set of "Dexter", has many original rooms that contain many objects, furniture, clothes, furnishings. Outside there is a large park with a maze of masonry. In the driveway there are gift shops and two restaurants, one neighbor has also livestock. Outside there is a large car park.
