  • Fantastic in the sense that stimulates the imagination so you can imagine the lives of Normans which admired the sea and on the other the mountain surrounded by beautiful gardens. Today is beset by ugly apartment blocks, though there is a little garden and fountain offers a nice perspective. Very nice ground floor with Arabic-style courtyard. You have to go get ready to enjoy everything because there is no explanation

  • Splendid palace open until second floor shows a path between the old and new walls that well illustrates the lives of gentlemen. Writing in a small park, it leaves to the imagination the reconstruction of the bridge connecting with the building front door.

  • "al aziz" appears today much neglected, full of pigeon droppings which freely would Frolic and with some parts in a State of disrepair. The State in which it is located does not justify the price of the ticket

  • The building looks quite impressive from outside. However exhibition inside is rather poor. I would not recommend going inside.
  • An interesting place to visit but do your homework beforehand, so that you know what you are visiting and it's significance: no English-speaking staff
  • Like so many others say, beautiful but not worth the admission. Excellent example of the maladministration they you find so much of in the Mezzogiorno. Take photos from outside.
  • Nice outside.
  • Beautifully rebuilt Arab-Norman castle. Fascinating to see what has been restored in brick vs. the original stone. A flawless representation of the original ground plan. Get a combo ticket with Palazzo Abatellis and there you have a perfect afternoon. Also quite near La Cuba, which is worth a visit in its own right.
