    If travel along Hwy 106 near Catanzaro Lido, a short distance you'll meet the indication for Squillace, today small country with Greek origins (visible in the archaeological remains and pottery traditions), but once a great pomp with possessions that stretched for several kilometers. The Gulf can be admired from many parts of the town but definitely from the castle the view is optimal. Under the Bourbon Government County prison, where he was imprisoned prison also became the philosopher FRA ' Tommaso Campanella. The function of prison lasted until 1978 when the structure underwent a monumental recovery that today you can appreciate. I remember personally the Castle as a prison, I visited when I was about ten years old with my father who was born here, prisoners were really kind, they were locked in cells and pochti and they offered me some cookies. It is part of the hospitality that you can appreciate in these areas, people don't have much but they are generous. The Castle welcomes you on a little square well kept, quiet and its walls characterize the shape of the country since the bends that lead from here on. It's an interesting, clean village, apparently with few resources but is to be discovered ...

    An amazing place kept very well and with a magnificent view. Inside there are also some remains of two warriors with detailed captions. I will be back without a doubt

    From the outside the castle is maintained well, but inside there's really not much to see. The path forward 5 minutes that lasts plus 15 min. to take a look at a small museum. The entrance fee is €. 3. I honestly don't recommend getting up in Squillace to see only the Castle since there's nothing else to see ....

  • Beautiful Norman castle overlooking the Gulf of Squillace and the hills below. Nicely restored and well maintained. One of the most beautiful places of Squillace.

  • Lovely place that enjoys an enviable view. The Norman castle is a must for those coming in calabria.
