  • Arrived on scene we were greeted by a guide dressed in typical medieval style that offered us the guided tour at the price of €3 in addition to the ticket price. The castle is characterised by numerous frescoes but is devoid of furniture. The Castle worth seeing with a guide. We didn't get to enjoy the view they told be spectacular because of the fog.

  • Majestic castle, among the most beautiful and evocative of the area. He breathes his story walking through the alleys. Even more magical enveloped by the darkness of the night. To visit a dozen more times, including interiors!

  • Beautiful castle, with numerous and beautiful frescoes and well maintained. It is the setting of the film Lady Hawke. Bare interiors. Certainly worth a visit

  • Great for a family trip, due to easy access of the castle. Castle in good condition, showcasing stables, defenses and nice art in almost every room. Outside arias offer great views of the surrounding hills. On the first Sunday of every month entry is free, which we luckily stumbled upon on our somewhat random visit.
  • Nice old castle built in 1448. Our guide explained us the history and various parts of the castle in a very entertaining and informative way. Could be a little bit boring without a good guide.
  • Beautifully kept castle. No furniture but amazing murals on the walls. It was very interesting with a beautiful setting. You can see most of the castle. Well worth a visit.
  • A nice castle, to bad it was not preserved by the previous owner (he sold all the furniture).
  • Be careful of your belongings! All our luggages were stolen from the boot of our car (locked!) within 20min of our stay. Beautiful place otherwise.
