  • Beautiful castle, well restored, sin that there is little to see, breathtaking, nothing else.

  • Taking back the title, our expectations were partly disappointed, because from the outside we expected something more, although it is beautiful the Majesty of the Castle seen from the outside or in the distance coming from Rieti. At 16.00 appointment for visiting (after telephone booking) € 14.00 full price, € 12.00 reduced. There is a picturesque path though quite steep that leads from the entrance to the first courtyard. Nice courtyard and the conservation status of the entire structure. Of the 100 rooms (and not 365 as the legend goes) you can visit only a few because most inhabited by the owners. Interesting frescoes are visible in some of them, but not those works inspired by the metamorphosis of Ovid (the castle is called Castle of metamorphosis for these frescoes) that are in the private section. Beautiful stroll along the outdoor walkways where you can admire a breathtaking view. Nice and helpful guide that announced the imminete opening for tours of the gardens. I didn't like the "works of art" exhibited in the various rooms.

  • The fortress, a national monument, it has fascinating architecturally, with a nice round of ronda. The site presents a restoration of 7 years, and the presence of several cycles of frescoes. for which the visitor expects to relive a page of ancient history. Unfortunately the reality is quite different, because the Interior is desolately empty, the frescoes are small, often limited to friezes. I can only agree with what wrote a reviewer Roman on August 2, 15. that the fortress should not be visited. Is there any form and some totem, which have nothing to do with the story. In addition the floors of several rooms are sprinkled with puppets, sassi, inventory, bulk junk funds, which are sold by the owner as modern art, interpreting these piles of anything like the tragedies of our times like world poverty, the tragedy of immigration or anything else. The owner will also illustrates psychiatrist, and is free to interpret these works (with very loose pattern) as works of art. But I am free to interpret these works (with equally free pattern) as an outlet for a ride. Among other things, the guided tour lasts 90 minutes when it suffice to see the 20 or 30 empty interiors, whereby there is an aggravating circumstance that we spent 90 minutes of our lives in a guided boring and in some respects offensive. And then the cost (14 EUR) is absolutely out of proportion to what you see. After Rocca Sinibalda went to Anagni, where the splendid museo della cattedrale (UNESCO, with crypt completely frescoed considered the Sistine Chapel of the middle ages) is offered at 8 euro, the Palace of Boniface VIII (there too splendid frescoes) is offered at 4 euros. Then at Tivoli where the visit of Villa d'Este (4 hours fascinating between halls, gardens and fountains, wonderful) 8 euros, and the Villa Adriana (UNESCO, splendid Archaeological Park unique in the world) 8 euros. Last but not least, I see on the site of the fortress that the entrance fee is reduced to 12 euro for seniors (instead of 14), but the guide is guarded well by pointing it out, or there was no sign at the entrance: IN SUMMARY, my advice is to stay away from THIS fortress.
