The Targia medieval castle was a "domus solaciorum" of Emperor Frederick II of Swabia; he loved to spend his moments of leisure in these areas of Sicily.

It has a rectangular plan with cylindrical corner towers, but the interior has been completely remodeled over the centuries.

The outer walls have remained intact on three sides, but are completely missing to the north, replaced by nineteenth-century buildings.

The north-east tower has been completely rebuilt, while the other three still retain medieval elements.

This ancient hunting lodge for many centuries was inhabited by many noble Syracusan families, including the Arezzo della Targia.

It was partially destroyed by the earthquake of 1693 and remained abandoned for a long time.

At the beginning of the 1900s it was bought and restored by the barons Pupillo, which are still the owners, and has been re-adapted to the wine industry.

The castle can be visited only on request.
