Castello Caetani, Sermoneta

(4.2/5 based on 460+ 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.

  • Visiting this town and castle is like taking a step back in time. My only regret is that there wasn't an English tour. You are required to join the tour group there is no wondering on your own.  more »

  • 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:)
