  • Considering the difficulty of reaching it was counting on to something more, uninspiring bare and being isolated, definitely well kept anyway.

  • The park before the structure is characterized by functioning fountains is really nice, inside the Palace is empty seeds and partly rebuilt after the fall of 1971 ... worth a quick visit 6us but beyond the Hall with fountain inside there is nothing particular.

  • The real interest lies in the shape of the building. Inside there is only an interesting mosaic that can be seen from outside the building.

  • 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.
