The Castle

Erected in Norman period, it is the greatest castle of Sicily and one of the most majestic of Italy.


In 1160 it was seat of meetings of barons rebellious to Norman king William I the Bad.


Its grandiosity is without equal, with a solemn main flight and with its long and white battlemented and turreted walls.

In 1963 it was acquired by Sicilian province which supplied with different works of consolidation and repair.

Its inside among others there are different rooms, such as stable rooms, theatre hall, various guards, court chapel, kneading-trough tower, the XVIIth-century residence of lords, servants' rooms and cells.
