    The castles always have a magical charm that surrounds them. Specifically to its surroundings there is a beautiful green lawn and a couple of gigantic trees. In the back overlooking the course, watching him from afar looks like the set of a movie. So beautiful it looks fake.

    Not comparable to the castles of Bellinzona or others in Switzerland, but of great historical value of the locarnese. Many resident have never visited, pity because I brought friends or groups and raved. Of course one must also take into account that some buildings in front of the Castle doesn't make it attractive, perhaps in the future, saw the birth of the new Palazzo del Cinema, it will be a tweak to the place so make it a point of attraction of the locarnese. Locarno has a lot to offer, but it always comes late, we should be less polemical and more practical and decisive. Regards, Füma.

  • Architecture is really interesting but it is not worth paying the fee to go in. The exposition inside its rather dated and does not offer anything special in terms of history or interesting facts about the construction.
  • It's a beautiful place for drug users and drinkers. I love it
  • Nice castle. The whole museum outdated. Staff not very friendly. Go there just to see the castle, which is interesting, but could do with some repair and maintenance.
  • went there thinking it was a huge castle. nothing but ruins where the town's drunk lot hang out.
  • Nice castle!

Where to stay in Locarno

Overlooking the waterfront of Lake Maggiore, picturesque Locarno has plenty to offer in terms of accommodations. A collection of charming, mid-market, family-run guesthouses and bed and breakfasts dot the shoreline, where you can enjoy a cozy stay in this vacation spot. On the east side of the cape stretches a long promenade, while the west side features a beach and public pool; immediate access to these depends on the position of your lodging. A little further inland you'll find a couple of hostels, a good option for budget-minded travelers willing to compromise on view.
