They don’t admit anybody from 15.30. They didn’t even let me look inside, despite begging them as I drove very long to be able to see the castle from inside.
cicipu 02 Aug 2010Almost entirely ruinedThere is not much of a castle remaining. It is located just above the village Peratata. It is polygonal in shape and covers quite an extensive area. Unfortunately, the castle is ruined today and only few buildings survive. But as the history goes that when the castle was in full bloom and during time of glory, it served as a protection for people in times of war. It is quite unbelievable that this ruined place could earlier had residences, public building, churches, hospitals, prisons and storehouses filled with food and weapons. It was like an entire city inside the castle! Unfortunately none of that remains now however you can go there for royal ruins and some amazing panoramic views. There is also a cafeteria in the castle where you can sip and munch. Overall it is a nice place but nothing extravagant.
