Easy to get to and only a few miles off the interstate up a mountain road. As castles go, I’ve seen better ones and worse ones. It doesn’t take long to see. The most difficult thing could be finding parking.

Well restored Castle, kids under 18 enter free. Castle has a long history, make sure you watch the video on the annual festival and the Miss Castellano Caccamo pageants.

Coming from the coast, the site of the castle is breath-taking. On it's own hill, it looks like a fairy tale fortress. Very well restored. Large powerful rooms, thick walls. Very impressive. Beautiful views of the town and country-side from the castle.There is a history...More

Honestly? We love castles and have seem dozens and dozens. This one really was a disappointment. It looks amazing from the outside but there is very little to see on the inside. A few rooms with some dusty old clothes, the odd sword and really...More

Easliy one of the best preserved medieval castles in Italy. You can do a pretty good walk through, and are able to see some parts that are original flooring. The views are wonderful! I stayed in Caccamo for a week and visited the castle twice....More
