  • The Sarzanello fortress is the symbol of the city of Sarzana, dominating not only the city but the entire Valley. From there, in Nice weather you can admire some islands of the Tuscan archipelago. The view then is fulfilled from the mountains above in Fosdinovo, from across the plain of Marinella with behind the Apuan Alps but especially you can admire the historic centre of the beautiful city of Sarzana steeped in history and tradition. In recent years the Sarzanello fortress, also known as the Duke of Lucca Castruccio Castracani fortress of 1300, is open to the public and is available for weddings or other ceremonies. Is a military fortress to visit, inside you can feel the history. Council visit in the spring after a nice walk in the hills jam sessions.

  • A beautiful fortress, well preserved. You can visit different environments including dungeons. Very nice also the night lighting.

  • We took a walk after a hearty lunch at Sarzanello fortress that always has its charm for stateliness of its walls (at night too fascinated to see the fortress lit by plain) and location in natural surroundings. Climb is always worthwhile, because a nice walk around the walls, above the moat is always possible (then is in the spring with the Sun, with a view that spans the Valley of the Magra and seaward). Sin finding often closed: who wants to visit inside should be interested and get organized before.

  • Beautiful old castle with great view of the whole town
  • Calme et paisible endroit
  • Because I am fascinated by the story evolve try to see it before you go for a ride in bike I don't know if I'll make it but I want to try on a Saturday morning and then if there were other things to see I could stop at a Bologna! B @ B. And depart Sunday afternoon.

  • Fortress is really beautiful and surrounded by greenery. Spectacular view at 360° over the Valley!

  • At first glance it may appear a bit fierce as a fortress but let us remember that it was not a castle; but in fact, a fortress for military use and defensive. Deserves a thorough visit, from the trenches of the walls, the Tower, up to the dungeons and prisons.
