  • The climb to the castle is not particularly demanding with a minimum of training you will get there in less than 30 minutes, well traced with beautiful views on Portoferrario the surrounding gulfs but also the area of Capoliveri.Il Castle or rather the ruins of the castle have ancient origins (Etruscans) then abandoned two centuries ago. Along the climb and outside the walls benches to admire the truly unique panorama and possibly catch your breath. So far the positive. Negative: Parking not marked and in fact reduced to toilet in all its corners;no explanatory table and especially brainly closing hours and opening; for the internal visit mandatory reservation. But is it too much to keep on-site a person who at least in the busiest months is available for paid guided tours? Asuunable little effort. Around paths that lead downstream through beautiful woods of oak and cork.
