Castello Piccolomini di Capestrano Reviews
Awesome place to go. The view on a clear day is breathtaking and the castle it self was awesome too. Added bonus - it's free!
Brilliant castle. Just turned up with 9 kids and they had the best time. All free and open to public. Fantastic. If in the area, drop in.
