We experienced the most beautiful wine tasting at the castle. Not only the winery have breath taking views but also offer special tours with wonderful wine testings. However, we had shipped 5 bottles of wine with one gallon of olive oil at the winery a month ago, but we still haven’t receive yet..hopefully soon. Highly recommend to visit!

Very nice village, beautiful view. The suggestive castle has its charm, but a little too abandoned to itself, it would be enough to cut the weeds and the road to enter it, because you have to be a little Indiana Jones to find the entrance, too bad

Castle now in ruins. Very beautiful but unfortunately only some remains can make us imagine its beauty of other times. The village is very nice and well kept. Very open and suggestive panorama

Unfortunately abandoned to itself, and officially it is definitely closed, but it is a wonderful structure. A disaster to see it unused and destined to collapse.

Salendo per tutte le vie del borgo, che è molto bello, si arriva fino al Castello che un tempo era una fortificazione difensiva. Peccato che ormai sia in condizioni pessime. Siamo però riusciti a salire fino in cima, perché l'erba era tagliata. Bellissimo il panorama!

Kastelholma Castle

First record of Kastelholma (or Kastelholm) castle is from the year 1388 in the contract of Queen Margaret I of Denmark, where a large portion of the inheritance of Bo Jonsson Grip was given to the queen. The heyday of the castle was in the 15th and 16th centuries when it was administrated by Danish and Swedish kings and stewards of the realms. Kastelhoma was expanded and enhanced several times.

In the end of 16th century castle was owned by the previous queen Catherine Jagellon (Stenbock), an enemy of the King of Sweden Eric XIV. King Eric conquered Kastelholma in 1599 and all defending officers were taken to Turku and executed. The castle was damaged under the siege and it took 30 years to renovate it.

In 1634 Åland was joined with the County of Åbo and Björneborg and Kastelholma lost its administrative status.
