Very close to the plaza. I think is the principal turistic point of interrest here. You'll be glad to admire an amazing view of the coast, the sea, the village. And you'll also find out some hystorical facts inside. The price for visiting is 3...More

Napoleon's brother in law, Murat, was shot here, but seeing a few dummies representing him, his fellow prisoners and the court that tried him do not make the small entrance fee worthwhile.

This castle, though dedicated to the incarceration and execution of Count Murat, Bonaparte's vain and ambitious brother in law, dates back to the 15th century and is well worth the €3 admission fee
