I realize now that it was pure luck that we found it open and had a very knowledgeable young lady as a guide.

The castle is closed for the foreseeable future. According to a local the police closed the castle on instruction of a judge. Shame, it looks the most interesting destination for visitors to Oria.

Thankfully we had not made a specific trip out to see the castle, which I understand other reviewers have done. It was disappointing that it was closed and on checking the dates on the gate found it was only open for a few days in July and August. From the outside it looked pretty good, but as a private home perhaps it should be removed from tourist related websites?…

The castle was closed and had notices pinned to the gates. It did not look like it would be open in the near future.

When a cultural heritage good comes into private hands this could happen: the castle is always closed! It is not fault of Apulian Government, not of the people of Oria. Poor castle, poor Apulia.
