  • Unfortunately I can't review the structure itself because those who run it (the city) has not deigned even to affix a notice of closure for restoration which, I learn through others, they should finish 5 (five) months ago! Pity, because from the very little we've seen of the area outside, on the street made it worth definitely worth! I plan to return to the re-opening

  • Too bad you found the Castle closed (it's actually a big masseria ex convento) but the path taken to get there per se were worth the detour. We enjoyed the sight of vast panoramas. Coming from Randazzo are the last in order of time, black lava flows from Mount Etna descended almost into country trouncing houses and vineyards and before you reach the turnoff to the castle through a huge antique pink grey casting flat already covered from lichens and a few saplings where in the middle of nowhere there is a ruined house cantoniera. On the right above the yellow slopes of Nebrodi cakes with gainers Maniace cornfields now straw and with rows of houses along the roads and Woods at the top. Enchanting even the road from Maniace leads to Bronte passing from Maletto from where you have a magnificent view of Etna that stands over a plateau of fields and Woods. Only one thing is missing: pistachio trees; or rather, there are a few, small, and, says the restaurant owner, will be collected only once every two years for not pushing them too and every tree from only a few handfuls of almonds. The question arises: where is this pistachio that's out there? ... the answer is to look for perhaps in Turkey, Iran or farther.

  • Having already visited several times this beautiful property I decide to do it find out to other people and ... surprise closed for renovation! Recommend a phone call before leaving home (095/690018) or on the official site although there is the order of the Mayor with completion date on 18 October 2017! The question still arises: could not close the property in part by allowing partial examination?

  • Lovely English house with lovely grounds in the middle of Sicily :)
  • The castle is an imposing structure and well maintained, but the old building now there is little, having been turned into a noble residence by the Dukes Nelson. Inside the barn you can see the remains of the apse of the Norman Abbey of "s. Maria di quel valorous Maniace", as is mentioned in medieval sources. In addition to the remains of the apse dates from the 12th century the magnificent portal of the Church.

  • Awesome place ... found it closed for renovations! They say they will reopen in October! Municipal administration misguided ... restorations clash in tourist seasons death ... not in the summer! ... meditate people!. and vote elsewhere!!!

  • It is the third time in three years and find it closed. The site for other now indicated as open. Poor management of the work. It's a shame because it is one of the most beautiful castles of Sicily.
