“An over restored castle”

Castello di Chiaromonte
Ranked #1 of 25 things to do in Naro
Attraction details
Reviewed 11 April 2017

It's quite a way up to the castle through the very narrow streets of Naro. We took a taxi to the top.It looks quite impressive on its hill top location. You enter through a large gate into a courtyard and into the castle across the yard. The wall of the castle have been over restored and it looks quite new! There are a collection of medieval ladies dresses in glass cases and in the prison area the walls have been carved with the names of prisoners. There was little else on display. It's perhaps worth the effort of going up there just for the view from the castle walls.

Fantastic old fortress, now a museum, with some frescoes and graffiti from hundreds of years ago, when the Castle was a prison. Great views from the tower.

The castle has been recently renovated and restored. It offers some of the best views of the southern west location of the island. Fantastic and brilliantly thought out to use a museum with original artifacts of clothing etc of the family who lived here.
