  • The history of this place is very very interesting and the Superintendent should take care of it, should have more care of this fine architectural! Very friendly and helpful the keepers.

  • What a waste of money. Not worth even €2 (price paid). There is nothing more than what you see in the picture.

  • The castle of Cuba is very small and there really isn't much to see. It's fair to say though that the person was very helpful to us

  • Really worth a visit & definitely worth buying the audio guide as there is no translation of information inside the palace. Get better idea of exhibits with guide and there is plenty to see. Two flights of spiral staircases so not for those who can't manage stairs.
  • One of the most famous Palermo's historical site. Count the devils depicted on the roof of the courtyard while entering and at the end of your visit...does the counting correspond?
  • Fascinating building clearly showing the difference between original features and the conservation repairs. Remember to take a guide in your own language though as all the information is in Italian only (unlike some of the other UNESCO sites we visited in Palermo which included French and English texts). Friendly and helpful staff, and some good exhibits.
  • Worth every minute of the walk through a less salubrious part of Palermo - make the effort and you will be rewarded with a wonderful mix of Norman and Arab architecture - beautifully restored.
  • Very beautiful piece of Arabic origin Norman architecture. Summer palace of Norman Kings of Sicilia.
