The place where stay the castle is an strategic position to observe the entire valley. In the norman era this was many important for to see the enemy arriving and to organize the city defense. Today is an quiet place from where admire the valley, the Alcantara river and other city in around like to Castiglione di Sicilia. It is easy to reach from Francavilla di Sicilia. It is no far from Taormina from where need about 30 minutes

There are many stupid reviews on here from people who's expectations are clearly deluded. The castle is, of course, a derelict ruin. It does not pretend to be anything other than that. But it's beautiful for it. Stunning views and a challenging footpath, but an exceptional visit. Make sure you arrive at the peak just before 12 noon - to hear the church play Ave Maria across the whole valley - incredibly moving. Superb views of Etna, Francovilla and surrounding valleys. Just at the base of the footpath is the square with the Ave Maria music and also the hiking route through the deserted medieval village and 2km hike around the hill. Just brilliant!!
