In the castle there are a collection things from ancient Rome. The most important are objects from Roman glasses.

Interesting place, wish had more English info on the walls to read. But very pretty. Close to the main square and not too expensive to go in, was 4 francs for me. Not busy or over run with people so nice to take your time...More

Nice little town castle, not really obvious where it starts and ends, but nice to see on your way through Locarno.

We spent about half an hour having a look round the grounds of the castle. It was fairly interesting but wouldn't go out of my way to visit, but worth a look if you;re passing.

Hardly a castle. Closed at lunchtime. No lift-so wheelchairs are out. Charges were 7CHF each. Very little in English. Not that great.

you could get lost in this old walls, if there were no clearly guided ways to walk it. An amazing construction and definitely worth a visit.

I visited this as I had time before leaving Locarno. The visit took 45 minutes and I was completely alone. There are great paintings on the wall, lots of old glass and pottery on display. The path takes you through a lot of great rooms...More

I will confess that pottery and glass do not feature highly amongst items which attract me to visit a museum but I have to admit that I found these displays of interest. The building even more so. I found exploring the passages and rooms great...More

The castle is relatively well preserved. There is a small room, keeping a per,want e position on the Locarno pact. Standard entrance costs CHF 7. A good visit might take 45 minutes. If in Locarno for a week end, it is worth a visit.
