  • Took a hike to the top for the view and the wind. Even lost a hat. Had to pay to get in, and did not have much of a stay. Same view I can get for free from other places.  more »
  • Located in a rocky spur that rises in one of the highest areas of the population, from it you can enjoy breathtaking views of Vernazza and much of the coast. Its origins are doubtful, being built probably between the 11TH and 13TH centuries, having undergone various modifications in later centuries, although it is recorded that the cylindrical tower that rises in the center of the Esplanade is the oldest part of the fortification. The only thing to visit is the patio and the tower, which during our visit was closed for renovations. The entrance to the castle costs €1.50, aiming the collection to the Green Croce, Association of volunteers working in the Sanitary branch. It can be visited every day, from 10.00 to 20.45 hours, although it is advisable to consult previously the timetable, as it varies depending on the season. Although the castle does not have much interest, as there is hardly anything left, the views that are contemplated are worth your visit.

  • Very good views however expect to pay 1.5 euros. The castle in itself is quite in ruins so the entry fees for it was not justifiable.
  • "Castle" was a pile of stones held together by netting. Good view of the ocean. But was asked to pay EUR1.5 to go up.
