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.

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.
