  • Wonderful experience in a medieval castle well preserved. A journey from the middle ages to the Napoleonic epic, culminating in the final days of the French King Joachim Murat, Napoleon's brother-in-law

  • lace square, houses in addition to the many ice cream shops, where you can enjoy absolutely the famous truffle, the Castle where he was a prisoner and mori Joachim Murat. It is interesting to visit it and get on the castle terrace from where you can enjoy a view of the beautiful sea of Calabria

  • Finally someone has taken up the story! Unique location inside it traces the path of Murat, la quiete drags you with thoughts about what it was. A round of applause to whoever gives the possibility of knowledge, pity the not being able to visit the dungeons. Anyway to visit and then ... in the nearby piazza a good ice cream.

  • If you're in Pizzo or even nearby the story of Murat (the King of Naples) and how he was imprisoned here until his execution is a very sad but enlightening one and well worth a visit. The views from the Castello are also fantastic. It's right next to the town square too which is nice.
  • Amazing place, you can go back in the past walking inside the castle. You cant miss the beautiful view of the coast from the terrace. Of course have a Tartufo is a must!
  • Very nice, even without going inside, beautiful landscape in the Centre of lace and wonderful sea view

  • Evening visit very impressive for the evocative atmosphere and exciting for the tragic historical event that took place in this military fortress. Moving the letter written by Murat to his loved ones. Fun and informative experience for children. Just a wee bit creepy mannequins the soundstage.

  • Great the view is the very low ticket price. It is well maintained, perhaps too: renovated so well that by walking in it looks like a modern building. In cells there are mannequins of dubious taste which try to illustrate to visitors the life inside the prison as well as clothing guards. There are no real historical exhibits, it all seems a bit fake. The view from the terrace is beautiful.
