Review of Castello di Lauria

Castello di Lauria
Reviewed 2 July 2014

An understated experience with work in progress when we visited, but ambitious plans for a permanent exhibition on wine, for which the region is renowned.

The Castello di Lauria is a very interesting site that needs more publicity. Located on one of the highest points in the town named for it, Castiglione di Sicillia, the castle offers an almost 380 degree view of the area. However it was very disappointing that there was no literature about the castle on offer and no tours or tour guides available. The two older women who sat crocheting and monitoring visitors were nice, but spoke no English. One showed us two rooms that had been preserved, one containing a wine bar, too bad it was too early for a drink. Both rooms had gorgeous frescoes on the ceilings which I would have loved to learn more about. Definitely worth the trip if you are in the area, but perhaps do some research on the area first.

I remember this place when I was a little girl and going back here much later was just as special.
It was a shame that the Castello was close for renovations but I am sure when they have it all opened it will be a special place.
They should open it for the public to see what a truly fascinating castello it is.
Gorgeous view of the villages and countryside below. You can see all the way to Francavilla from here.
