Pretty small castle. Nothing much special. Offers nice views of the the coastline. At the time, there was a Frankenstein exposition. That one was worthless. A couple of posters, some texts about Shelley and all in Italian

Interesting attraction, it's a pity that is not properly valorized. From the top terrace the panorama on the gulf is astonishing.

There was an art exhibition in this small castle when we visited. Wonderful views across the bay to Lerici and Portovenere.
