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!

My girlfriend and I spent well over two hours walking around and taking in the beautiful views from the castle. An amazing experience I would recommend to anyone who visits Milazzo. The castle is stunning both internal and external.
