This castle is one of the symbolic places of Randazzo.

It was for a certain period at the center of the vicissitudes of the Aragonese rulers of Sicily since, in medieval times, Randazzo was chosen as summer residence.

Peter III of Aragon made it its headquarters during the War of the Vespers.

It has a quadrangular plant.

Its tower is the only one left of the eight that stood along the city walls.

The portal is dominated by an eagle, symbol of the Aragonese.

It was built in the eleventh century and expanded in the fourteenth century; it was much larger than it is today, in fact it also included stables and other service areas that had been lost over the centuries.

It also was a terrible prison for a very long time.

Inside there is a museum with permanent exhibits of sicilian puppets and art exhibitions.

Entrance: 9.00am - 1.00pm and 3.00pm - 7.00pm.
