The ruins of the castle are charming even if it looks a bit abandoned - but that also adds to the charm. We could visit the inside of the castle. As nice as the castle, is the view over the area, including the sea.

The walk up there, starting from la cattolica, takes about 30 minutes. It's somewhat steep, full of rocks (flipflops are not a good idea) and most of the path is in the sun. But the path is well indicated, there is nothing dangerous, and there are a few places with shade to rest

It takes about 30-40 minutes to get to the castle .
It's possible to arrive just by walk starting from the Cattolica.
There are the ruins of this Norman ancient castle of the XI century and a wonderful view of the valley from the top of the Monte Consolino, where the castle is situated!
