The castle of Venetico was built in the second half of the fifteenth century by the Spadafora.
Preserved in good condition for the most part of its history, it was severely damaged by the earthquake that struck Messina in 1908; reduced to a ruin it was perfectly restored in 1925.
It is a square-shaped building with cylindrical towers at the corners.
It is accessed from the south via a staircase.
The main façade overlooks an artificial moat.
Inside the courtyard there are cisterns.
The walls and two towers are preserved with part of walkways.
On the north-west side you can still see the remains of large rooms once used as a residential area.
A little further south there are the remains of an ancient chapel.
The castle is now private property and can be visited on request.
