It was closed but it is part of a lovely walking tour with amazing views of this medieval time. There are signs next to each monument showing the path . In the center of this little village there is a great pasticerie!

An understated experience with work in progress when we visited, but ambitious plans for a permanent exhibition on wine, for which the region is renowned.

The Castello di Lauria is a very interesting site that needs more publicity. Located on one of the highest points in the town named for it, Castiglione di Sicillia, the castle offers an almost 380 degree view of the area. However it was very disappointing...More
