洲本城(すもとじょう)は、淡路国津名郡、現在の兵庫県洲本市にある日本の城跡。別名三熊城。国の史跡に指定されている。沿革1526年(大永6年)、三好氏の重臣・安宅治興が築城した。治興の後は養子安宅冬康(三好長慶弟)、冬康死後は長男信康、二男清康へ受け継がれ、1581年(天正9年)の淡路討伐の際、総大将羽柴秀吉に降り、城は仙石秀久に与えられた。しかし、秀久は九州征伐の際に軍律違反を犯して高野山へ追放され、かわって脇坂安治が城主となり、天守が造営されるとともに、石垣の大改修の際、倭城での経験から「登り石垣」が築かれた。江戸時代になり、姫路城主池田輝政の三男忠雄が領主になった際に廃城となり、まず岩屋城、次に由良成山城に居城する。これは関ヶ原の戦い以降も、豊臣方大名の動きを牽制するために、徳川家と縁戚関係にある池田氏(忠雄の正室は徳川家康の孫)に播磨灘と大坂湾一帯を防衛させるためとされる。大坂夏の陣の後、徳島藩の蜂須賀氏の所領となり、筆頭家老の稲田氏一族が由良城代となるが、交通の便が悪いなどの理由から1631年から1635年にかけて由良城を廃して洲本城に再び本拠を移した。この移転は城下町ごとの大移転であったため俗に「由良引け(ゆらびけ)」と呼ばれている。 現在は曲輪、池、石段、石垣、櫓跡などが残る。天守台からの眺望「大浜を大観」と三熊山東側展望台からの「マリーナを展望」は洲本八景の1、2に選ばれている。

  • 雖然洲本城天守閣不能進入,但洲本城跡公園很憂靜,遊人不多,山上景色優美,能眺望整個洲本城和紀淡海峽海景,天氣好可看到和歌山。 
  • Small castles, was like a miniature. This is a cute little castle. But the view was the best. To have to climb the mountain from the Hotel City Castle that more would go to see the views.
