  • 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 »

  • This attraction was closed when we visited the end of March 2017. I am sure the views from this castle will be beautiful if it were open. Avoid the uphill walk to the castle before you check with a local on whether it is open.
  • Great castle with wonderful views. Have small change ready to pay the entrance fee. Really reeks of chlorine which made the experience a bit too smelly.
  • Once you reach the Castle you will need to pay a small sum to be able to climb up to the tower, but I would recommend you to do it because it will give you the opportunity for some nice shots. Great view from up there.
  • GREAT PANORAMA AND VIEW OF VERNAZZA. I'VE BEEN HERE TO ENJOY THE SUNSET. DEFINITELY A MOMENT I WILL TREASURE.
  • Good overview of the town and bay. Costs 1.5 euro to enter but that's a small fee for a great view
