    The ancient aragonese Castle, situated on the outskirts of lace only accessible on foot, as it is located on Hwy. In the area are easily teovabili parking charges and not. To visit the Castle you pay a share of the whole ip €4.50 €6 risotto; After that you visit before the bottom of the cells of prisoners and then you climb to the upper floor where there were accommodations the terrace and the watchtower. Setting media with the presence of mannequins some maps and some historical reconstruction of the port of lace. Many areas including torture and lodging guards were without light. Duration around 40 minutes. Beautiful panorama overlooking the Tyrrhenian coast. Opportunity after a visit to taste the famous Pizzo truffle or eat at the many restaurants within walking distance.

    Worth stopping by to see the prison of Murat. Recently restored are trying to re-evaluate the various rooms. The view from the terrace at sunset is a show.

    Entrance fee, 3 euros you spend again for a spin in this watchtower. Well preserved and with a too-faithful reconstruction of the permanence, the process and the shooting of the King of Naples Joachim Murat in 1815. In the various premises in celle there are disturbing enough mannequins depicting the characters of the historical events. From the terrace you can enjoy a beautiful panorama. Well worth a visit.

  • 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
