It's a really well preserved castle from the 12th or 13th century. It's all cobblestone steps to the top so walking can be tricky. But the view is amazing and the castle is well worth seeing.

The castle is incredible. We had a private tour of the castle and thoroughly enjoyed it. My grandmother came to America in 1921 and as I was growing up she always talked about the beautiful castle in Mussomeli, her home town. It was a thrill...More

The histroic Manfredian Castle in Mussomeli is truly a must-see! Any visitor to Mussomeli should make it one of their top priorities. Give yourself an hour to go through it. Souvenirs also available outside near the gate.
