“Only worth the effort if you are wearing comfortable shoes”

Castello della Fava
Ranked #3 of 6 things to do in Posada
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 20 August 2018

Staying not too far away from Posada, this was an easy must see / must do. Warned for the steep climb, but not wearing the best shoes, we found our way up to the top. The view was lovely, the signs were informative. Even tried the very top level accessing it by a little ladder (not recommended for people with backpacks or pouches). That did not make a great difference in the view, so skip it if you have limited time.
When we were there there was nothing other than the view, but that could have been the time of year (just before the season opening).
Worth it if you don't mind the climb and have limited time.

Walking up to the castle is steep and a bit frightening, but wear good shoes and when you arrive to the top, it’s worth the walk. The view is very nice and if you dare, climb to the top of the stairs inside the castle.

The Castello provides a magnificent view as well as written explanations along the hike up. It can not be recommended for people who have walking issues. Posada is a truly hidden pearl

it's worth it.Super view from the top. Also there is a bar to grab a beer or a coffee. You need shoes to go up. Flip flops not very good for the walk.

Great views from the top - lots of ladder stairs to get up there, culminating in an actual ladder on the final section. Tricky with small children and not for those who don't like heights. Not good for those with mobility problems either. Lovely little town surrounds the castle.
