  • Castle returned to the village and visitors thanks to a remarkable restoration of the late 90s and well maintained by those who manage its visits. It is located on the top in the center of the medieval village. Although the castle is not very large and inside there is not much to see, the small exhibition of reconstructions of castles and hermits (meticulously and successfully executed with the use of real stone) and the information space with historical news and curiosities more disparate both on Pettorano and on the neighboring countries have captured our attention and kept busy for almost 2 and a half hours! From above you can admire a beautiful view of the Peligna Valley and the surrounding mountains. It's worth spending the modest 2nd ticket for the entrance, in fact in our opinion they should increase the price of the visit a bit because surely the expenses for the necessary maintenance of the castle are certainly not few. And it would be a real shame not to give this little jewel to future generations too

  • It was a pleasant surprise to see a castle so well kept in a medieval village. The children were attracted to. This is currently an exhibition of reconstructions of medieval castles made of stones. Nice. 2 euro admission for adults only.

  • Stands almost in the middle of the country with the mighty pentagonal tower. Amazing panorama from its Summit the Peligna Valley, even at night. In theaters, the lives of coal miners, the history of the area, models of castles of Abruzzo. The only "no": stairs to climb to the battlements were lit!

  • Very nice place! Try the cold water that comes out from the mountain it's amazing
  • A beautiful place in the heart of Abruzzo and on the tip of Pettorano sul Gizio! Perfect for charging the batteries and a few steps away from some more than adequate ski destinations

  • The Castello Cantelmo of Pettorano Sul Gizio, built on an existing lookout tower, was part of a defense system composed of other castles of which people, Pacentro, Raiano, Vittorio, Prezza and Antwerp. After the Battle of Benevento it became the property of the Cantelmo family who held it until 1750. Built on the hill of the Guardiola dominates the valley of the Gizio showing still the signs of an imposing past even though it has been transformed into a modern exhibition structure. In addition to the castle, the current village of Pettorano Sul Gizio deserves to be visited because it is among the most beautiful villages in Italy... But for the latter I will write another review!
