As per other reviews, this is quite a hike from the main town. Worth checking opening times before setting off, we were lucky and got there for it opening in the afternoon (3 until 7). The elderly man who lives there speaks little English and...More

Beautiful place with nice view to Maiori and sea. Lots of all kinds of flowers, butterflies, birds, quietness. The actual castle was closed for renovation (?), so we couldn’t get in.
