    Only open to visitors of 3 strong hugging Hercule, I stumbled upon noting the stunning panoramic views from the Spanish Fortress, located slightly further down, on the top of the bluff overlooking Porto Ercole. Then, going down in the car and taking the scenic route to the left, after about 5 minutes you can reach it by climbing on to a road on the right. As I said in the title, is the only one of the 3 fully open strong Porto Ercole as uninhabited, the modest sum of 2 euros, but you have to stick to timetables that vary from season to season and from day to day, just watch them on the website of the municipality of Argentario. We unfortunately were buggerati because we went in May and during the week, in that period is only open on weekends. Still, it was nice to stroll around its perimeter to admire the gorgeous views and to take beautiful pictures, especially in front of the gateway from which you notice the shape of the Fort, reminiscent of a star. Surely, finding it open, a visit is worth it!

    A beautiful Citadel overlooking the city. A staircase is from the port up to the entrance of the old town. Another leads to the fort. A magical place.

    It is on the road to Porto Ercole, a few km from the village, just above the beach. A sign on the stand of the access road indicates the opening in July and August from 17:00 to 21:00, and the obligation of payment of €2 just to get to the Castle.

  • Beautiful panorama 2 eur entrance, small car park at the entrance. Eye to the timetables available on the site.

  • The interiors are a little bare, but the price is minimal and well worth the visit

  • Inside of the Fort. Panoramic terrace and its spectacular view. Entrance 2 euro, 1 euro reduced. I absolutely recommend a visit. Very small parking

  • Spectacular, but unfortunately we did not find any inside view. The entry there is still cost €2 per person ... With the exhibition I could also go well.

  • Location really atmospheric. The property is well kept and the admission price is really low (something like a few euros, also you can also take advantage of discounts if you are students etc). Recommend to visit this location because in addition to the historical and cultural value, the landscape views from the top floor of the Fort is truly exceptional.
