Perched on top of the hill above Gorizia and next to the memorable World War 1 museum, this is an impressive 15th century structure. Best of all are the wonderful views from the battlements, well worth the climb.

Couldn't have asked for a nicer castle to visit. Loved that they have kept it in the traditional set up so you get a feel for life in the 1500s. Loved it here.

It was raining when we visited the castle but we enjoyed it even more for this reason: it has been like jumping in the medieval era! Wonderful sightseeing from the top
