  • The growing military power of the Republic of Genoa in Levante ligure, already near the end of the 1100 was manifested by the creation of massive military facilities, as this Castle located on a rocky outcrop overlooking the fishing village and an overhang created by the cliff which reaches the sea. At the top of the Fort, is the so-called casa del castellano, building with several rooms that in the 16th and 17th century it was the seat of the Capitano del Popolo, an officer with distinct functions by the podestà; Today it is in good condition and is used by the Town Council as exhibition hall.

  • Took the ferry over to Portovenere from the La Spezia harbor - a short and pleasant trip. It is a bit of a hike uphill to get to the site, but definitely worth the walk. The views are spectacular and ...  more »

  • Good 360 degree views of Vernazza, for only 1.5 euros. Some might find the short but tight and steep-ish stairs challenging.
  • There's a winding, tight climb up stairs to get up to the castle, then even tighter stairs up to the tower. But it's definitely worth it to get great views of the town.
  • 1,50€ per person to go up and get a panoramic view of Vernazza. Not a bad deal.
  • I used to refuse to pay extra €€ for those that turns out nothing much in the end. This was €1.50 cash only(would be better if they CEARLY show that we have to prepare cash) and I was like... well give it a try! And it was spectacular! I've seem many great views in Cinque Terre and this was one of the bests! A bit of walking up and the price is not included in Cinque Terre Pass, but truly worth it. Must try!
  • This place gives you an excellent view over Vernaza. The price of 1,50€ per person is reasonable.
