Rosenburg Castle was built in the 12th century by the Counts of Riedenburg. It has been rebuilt and extended many times, right up to the present day.

In the Peasants' War , the castle was conquered in April 1525 by rebels and largely destroyed. A reconstruction took place between 1556 and 1560. In the Thirty Years' War the castle 1632-1634 was sacked several times. During the War of Spanish Succession Rosenburg was conquered by the Austrians.

The well maintained property now serves as a castle museum.

Good place for kids and bird show was amazing. Little bit sad by seeing all birds in cages. But castle and place location was amazing. Entry free is about 8 euros and please check show time before going there. There are two show happen in a day, one at 11 and other at 3.30.

Entry costs 8 euros and it was worth it. The presentation of the big birds is impressing and takes about 40 minutes. Beside the birds show, also the museum in the castle has a lot to offer. There is also a Biergarten where a Bier can be drunk and some food eaten.

Late Baroque Town of Ragusa

The eight towns in south-eastern Sicily, including Ragusa, were all rebuilt after 1693 on or beside towns existing at the time of the earthquake which took place in that year. They represent a considerable collective undertaking, successfully carried out at a high level of architectural and artistic achievement. Keeping within the late Baroque style of the day, they also depict distinctive innovations in town planning and urban building. Together with seven other cities in the Val di Noto, it is part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

In 1693 Ragusa was devastated by a huge earthquake, which killed some 5,000 inhabitants. Following this catastrophe the city was largely rebuilt, and many Baroque buildings from this time remain in the city. Most of the population moved to a new settlement in the former district of Patro, calling this new municipality 'Ragusa Superiore' (Upper Ragusa) and the ancient city 'Ragusa Inferiore' (Lower Ragusa). The two cities remained separated until 1926, when they were fused together to become a provincial capital in 1927.
