  • This of course was the castle (former monastery) and estate given to Nelson and kept by his heirs. It must have been something of a white elephant. At the moment it is closed for extensive renovations...  more »
  • Moderately priced for a guided tour on a site of historic importance although apparently Nelson has never been here anyway very nice you pass an unforgettable day!

  • The castle is really beautiful. I enjoyed the beautiful garden very relaxing. Worth the price of admission 3 euro. Interesting place to take great pictures

  • August 2016-great place and well maintained. More than a castle, I would call this an Abbey. It can be visited with a guide in the morning and the afternoon. The last guided tour of the morning is at 12:30, the first of the afternoon at 15:00. Inside there is also a chapel (I think, always open). The cost of the ticket is just 3 euros per person

  • The site is closed until November 2017 for renovation. Not a sign that warns tourists. Congratulations to the town of Bronte.
