  • If at the end of a day of salt you want to enjoy the magical sunset on the island, armed with good will and get on their way towards the top of the abandoned Castle of Saint Catherine. Once past the Praia adjoining the port, start climbing the winding scainata that leads to the ancient castle. Bring the water and a good bottle of wine and get ready to see the Sun that throws you into a sea of pink-orange. A good escape from the summer heat. Forget home cigarettes, save the fire and enjoy this climb to an impressive place and abandoned

  • St Catherine's Castle you can admire the beauty of Favignana (TP), being the highest point on the island. The walk to get to the top is a bit challenging, but overall you can do. Just wish the structure (which more than a real Castle has the appearance of a watchtower) is abandoned and even a bit unsafe. In my opinion needs some more maintenance.

  • St Catherine's Castle is one of the attractions of Favignana. It is located on the highest point of the island is clearly visible from any location. As soon as I heard about it I was immediately intrigued and I was eager to get on it as soon as possible. The climb is a bit tiring ... up to a point you can climb by bike or scooter, but then you have to walk, given the location, a happy return or early morning or late afternoon, because the entire climb is exposed to the Sun! Once at the top you are rewarded with a splendid panorama that I will never forget; In addition to seeing all Egadi Favignana from above and all, in particularly clear days you can see also Erice as has happened to me! The castle is a ruin unfortunately abandoned, why in my judgment I have given excellent ... I'd like it to be restored in this case would be an additional value!

  • Too bad it is left abandoned, really. Beautiful scenary on Levanzo and Marettimo though. Worth the visit at dawn or dusk.
  • Great place te get a bird eye view of the island! Unfortunately the state of fort building is quite bad. There are signs there which prohibit entrance becase parts of the building can colapse. You can walk around it and take nice photos ;)
  • great view! i hope they restore the abandoned castle though
  • Loved it. View from top is awesome! Warning - it's Super windy up there. Get warm clothes ;)
  • Nice landscape
