This is a somewhat impressive site which unfortunately was not open on New Year's Day. It looks in amazing condition for it's age and apparently houses an interesting museum which we were looking for to seeing.

This is located on top hill in a small town in between Catania and Adrano where you can see the old buildings and a nice viewpoint to see the valley.

This castle-museum houses some of the best artifacts from Neolithic to the Norman times, some of which have surely seen battle. The panoramic views from the rooftop are breathtaking. The castle is a must-see if visiting Adrano and it is also within walking distance of other nearby attractions. (A town map was provided by the tourist information office across the road from the castle).…
