This castle amazes. It is larger than it appears and represents layers of civilizations. Views are stunning in all directions from a number of different locations throughout. Allow a couple of hours. Be prepared for an uphill walk and stairs! Well worthwhile.

Talk a walk through the town and up to the castle. The castle has an interesting history and the facts are well organized for all to appreciate. The view from there is wonderful even if you do not go inside

We did not expect this place to be as interesting as it was. It is being renovated and reconstructed with support from EU and it is very very impressive. The view is just amazing! A must if you are in Milazzo!

This castle is well worth a visit. The view is wonderful and you can see all around the coastline of Milazzo. Also the history of this place is fascinating. A lot of conflicts has taken place on this ground since almost a thousand years back....More

Tremendous fortress and easy to get to from the port past fish stalls. The usual pile up of invaders have built here from Greeks to fascists. Now a bit crumbly and fragile. Loved it. Could maybe do with a wee café.

Hello ! I don't know about the bus but the walk is nice but steep. It took us about 40 minutes to walk from the ferry terminal
