Such a pleasant visit--a beautiful, well preserved, historic castle by the sea, overlooking the waves. The story of Murat is interesting. We stood in the place where he was executed, kinda grisly. Definitely worth the visit and cost of admission.

5 minutes will be enough to visite this castello. Young boys will enjoy it much more then young girls.

Beautifully located on the edge of the Piazza reppublica. Worth walking around, not worth entering. The views around it are beautiful.

Italy surely has castles with far more interesting stories. But, if you made all the way to Rizzo, and the the piazza della republicca, the castle will provide you with a great view of the sea shore (with the obligatory local 18th century story).
