Castello di Donnafugata, Donnafugata

(700+ reviews on the web)
Castle Tourist Spot
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.

  • Mainly nineteenth century interiors which have been neglected and show the ravages of damp and dirt. Impressive castle walls.  more »
