  • Regardless of how you think Murat has been part of the history of Italy. Beloved by calabresi and from the South of Italy for its modern reformism, spent his last days in the castle that houses the Museum, executed the Bourbon guards. To visit.

  • I'm sorry to do this review so bad not because of the place that has historical importance as to the overall look. Staff at the entrance absolutely inadequate, had to wait at least 5 minutes before going to discuss among themselves and then buy tickets and join the visit, we asked to take a small brochure, which elsewhere is of course free to allow you to better understand what you're observing, we were told was paying and were given one of the Piedigrotta Church but I say what's the point? The thing that gives me more discomfort is the fact that places like this should be kept in a more presentable, the weeds on the exterior wall of the castle should be removed!! every now and then a sweep inside should be given!! The gem then is an LED light like Christmas inside the Chamber of Murat, probably by some genius to give the environment a more fascinating ... the result is something really ridiculous! Bothered by seeing the beauties that we have in our country mismanaged and poorly exploited!

  • A local and national monument so steeped in history deserves a completely different organization. The lighting is insufficient if only to appreciate the external and internal architecture of Castello Aragonese, cheap headlights are positioned (male) within cells making poorly visible period costumes, as well as the mannequins and composition are simply embarrassing to invoice and rigidity. Little or no attention to detail, nonexistent infographics and trivial route signage dedicated to visitors, total absence of computerised, app, bright modern and attractive tables to make the visit, as it is lacking and uncared for throughout the Museum aspect. I refrain from comment on the room dedicated to the store of the Museum because it recalls, by type of exposure and products for sale, a stand of country.

  • 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!
  • BRL Castle held up well but very little ... There is not much to see except the beautiful view seen from outside
