  • I wanted to visit Saracen Castle on Holy Saturday 2019.After a nice walk to reach it comes the surprise of the closure. It is unacceptable that on Easter holidays it is only open for Easter. During my walk,at least 20 other people were interested in the visit, unfortunately poor organization. Better to remember the beautiful panorama of the Lucan dolomites

  • The first time I visited Pietrapertosa, I found the castle closed (it was almost late February), but I was very impressed by the view from there visible. Now I'm back, taking advantage of the FAI openings, with a camera with the great zoom that allowed me to take different photos from the last time. Standing on the wall walk, with few obstacles to the North and East, offers the feeling of having the world at your feet. This castle, probably built by Saracen mercenaries for the Longobards, as protection from the Byzantines, really seems perched on a rocky cuckoo. I imagine the work effort undertaken to excavate the fortress and the construction of walls and towers up there. Beautiful experience!

  • The castle is on the mountain and to climb the last stretch there is a super inclined staircase, which if you don't stand on the handlift you feel like you're going backwards backwards. Cost 2 euros. well restored, and beautiful view. To visit
