  • If you go to Sarzana watch the Castle but from outside! The path that they do is a staircase leading to the Tower (no biggie) and the dungeons. The castle is internally redone and used as rooms, and on the other hand in certain spots not treated with dumpsters in plain sight. We feel bad. A fine architectural/historical/archaeological shouldn't be in these conditions.

  • The fortress or Citadel is well worth the trip, especially because its stands it shows the Sarzanello fortress that you absolutely must visit immediately after! Although some things were ' redone ' to make the path not dangerous, in the collection is beautiful and seems to immerse himself in the past, at the time of the arquebuses and armor. The audio guide the Council says the essentials and not long-winded.

  • The Firmafede fortress, also known as the Citadel, is located in the South of the historical center of Sarzana, near Porta Romana. The fortress, in the past has also been the site of a prison. A few months ago is home to a multimedia Museum that aims to raise awareness of the history of the fortresses and the city of Sarzana Firmafede Sarzanello, and the entire region of Lunigiana. The Museum, which consists of 27 rooms, does not have its own collection but brings to life a place inhabited by the Lords, Knights, bishops, pilgrims, merchants, farmers and soldiers who populated these spaces really. A few months ago were also recovered the dungeons that are open to the public. The fortress is open almost every day.

  • The citadel is very nice. However, its navigation is extremely confusing due to the complete absence of any signs whatsoever. As a tourist attraction, it's a complete disaster of those who are supposed to manage it.
  • situated atop a Hill but easily accessible from the center of Sarzana in 5 minutes walking distance is the most important building of the walls Sarzanese. Erected in 1249 by Pisa was extensively renovated in 1324 by Castruccio Castracani. Often hosts events and exhibitions.

  • Visited yesterday afternoon, without a guide is somewhat difficult to immerse themselves fully in the history that you should breathe within these walls. The fortification is impressive although still very much restored and sometimes in the Interior almost rebuilt. Recommend a visit with audioguide only otherwise I'll enjoy it fully! However compared to the nearby fortress of Sarzanello, loses much.
