  • The Views over the city is amazing. You can explore about the complete caste and the entry fee is really worth the price for preserving this UNESCO site. 
  • Located above Castelgrande (which is just opposite, on the other side of town), the Castle offers a beautiful view of Bellinzona and the Castelgrande. Very characteristic is the walkway to go to reach the Castle, but at the same time is also quite steep and not at all accessible (the castle is still reachable via bus or train). I preferred this to the Castelgrande Castle because (from top of my historical ignorance) although smaller it seemed more original than the first, with less "hangover". Even the two drawbridges present seem even working! Free admission to visit the courtyard of the Castle and its walls, the ticket is required (budget, 5 francs for all museums of the three castles) to see the Museum located within it.

  • When the weather is very cold and atypical for the Ticino, this castle is on his own because of the beautiful location, very recommended!

  • Lovely picnic place and view over Bellinzona. I haven't been to the paid area, but the free is definitely good enough. You can stroll through most of the castle there and enjoy it!
  • Unbelievable place. You could think this medieval castle was still manned yesterday! Views are breath taking, well worth the visit!
  • The view of Castelgrande and Bellinzona is beautiful! The walk is worth it!
  • Possibly the best of the three castles, equipped with it's own museum even.
  • Great view
