  • We are passing through the area we decided to go to see the famous Norman castle at Squillace. Unfortunately we just caught one of the closing days (Thursday). Anyway from the outside is very impressive and the structure looks well cared for. Definitely you can admire the Interior.

  • After a leisurely lunch in a restaurant of the town decide to go and visit the famous Norman castle. Unfortunately the visit has settled with a hole in the water because everything was closed despite the sign requests to say otherwise. Very, very disappointing for a city with so much history.

Inside a small museum, which brings to light an ancient and sad fact-at-arms. The view is beautiful and makes it clear the military importance of the position.

  • The town of Squillace is dominated by the ruins of the ancient castle, whose existence has been documented since the 9th century a.d. It is thought that the original building was built on the ruins of a Byzantine castrum Castellense, the Governor of the great Aurelio Cassiordoro had built during the period of the Ostrogoths. Because of its location in the domain of the entire Gulf of Squillace, the castle became the Centre of continuous clashes between Normans and Swabians before, and among angioini and aragonesi then.
