  • a part of the fortress is closed of for military purposes, and beside it is this little lighthouse on the outer side.  more »
  • The lighthouse can be admired at the entrance to the castle. But the lighthouse is nothing special. Much nicer are the surrounding areas of the castle.  more »
  • Lighthouse inside Scilla castle. I loved it. Sadly you can´t come closer because of the fence that declares military ground.  more »
  • nice
  • Posto molto bello, con vista panoramica spettacolare. Da vedere
  • Sehr interessant.
  • De vuurtoren van Scilla ligt op een prachtige locatie in Scilla. Het ligt op het kasteel van Scilla, een icoon van de stad. De entree van het kasteel is 2 euro per persoon (kinderen zijn gratis) en dat is het geld zeker waard. De uitzichten rondom de kleine witte vuurtoren zijn werkelijk wonderschoon. Het gedeelte naast de vuurtoren is nog in gebruik door het leger. Het kasteel met zijn vuurtoren ligt op loopafstand van het station en van een parkeerterrein. De vuurtoren is lastig te bereiken voor rolstoelgebruikers.
  • Spettacolare
