Castello Caetani, Sermoneta

(4.2/5 based on 440+ reviews on the web)
Thirteenth-century Castello Caetani was built as both a military fortress and a noble residence: here, you can glimpse the private and public life of medieval Lazio. Despite the fortress's large, 3 m (10 ft) thick exterior walls, Napoleon's army plundered it in the late 18th century, carrying away its valuables and furniture and turning the castle into a prison. Most restoration work was carried out nearly 100 years later. Visiting hours can be somewhat inconsistent, so it is best to check online or call first if you plan to visit.

  • Given that the castle like building fascinates me. The castle is more like a fortress, complete tour lasts a 40/50 minutes. Well explained but apart from the bedroom and horse stables not much charm and the various rooms with frescoes of the Middle interest there is nothing. From the battlements of the castle there is a remarkable view of the surrounding area. A round of applause to those who have had the patience and the courage to invest in this piece of history of our land

  • The visit to the castle was very enjoyable! Thanks to well prepared, you do a small journey through the walls of the fortress, passing in the rooms and corridors narrow and low MALE towers and BOY ... and you can admire the wonderful real estate and architectural characteristics of those times! An experience!!!

  • Great place that exudes history from every corner ... major movies were filmed here. Castle fairly well maintained and very charming. We want to go back in the summer for another full immersion Sermoneta.

  • The Castle dominates the town of Sermoneta, whose old town, left everything in stone, represents a stunning photograph of the medieval period, so much so that often they turn period film (among the last tale of tales, silk and we can do is cry, besides the series Borgia). The castle was built in the 12th century by the Annibaldi and after several passages by hand between the Caetani, the Borgia popes and other dynasties, has come finally to the Caetani who lived here until a few decades ago. The castle is maintained very well, can be visited through guided tours for a fee, to admire the halls pints, courtyard and stables, in addition to the patrol path on the outer walls. interesting combination ticket to visit the gardens of Ninfa, always natural and ancient ruins monument Caetani property Nymph.

  • Wonderful view over the Valley. A well maintained. We visited the castle during a local Festival. Music and band in medieval costume. Really special

  • Church-State tensions in the story of a beautiful castle within a town that seems to have been suspended in the past

  • I was hugely disappointed. Belonging some exterior and the charm of knowing that "we just have to cry" was filmed there, too, is a medieval castle that has retained little. ...

  • Beautiful castle! Comprehensive guide and detailed. The Castle as well as its scenery really deserve! Well worth the money. Maybe it's closed too often, but whatever you appreciate more once you visit:)
