Unfortunately the castle is not very well kept ... not even the garden. The rooms to visit are very few, no furniture, no exhibitions. Ticket price too high. Sin

Castello della Val di Non of which only the walls and the structure remain, if you are passing through it is worth stopping otherwise there are still more beautiful castles in the area. Visits are allowed only on Saturdays and Sundays. For the visit it is advisable to call the tourist office in which it is possible to book it, It is advisable to buy the ticket for Castel valer and Castel and Castello inganno at the same time so you do one in the morning and the other in the afternoon.

Well maintained castle. It deserves more than a look

Interesting castle. Audio guide was good. Beautiful garden. But there's not a lot to see inside the building so don't expect to spend much time visiting.

Nice castle among the apple orchards, with a simple but pleasant interior garden with various fruit trees. It is a pity that the castle is practically bare inside and various rooms cannot be visited. The visit is still pleasant, even if the cost is perhaps slightly high for what is offered.

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.
