Castello Caetani, Sermoneta

4.3
Thirteenth-century Castello Caetani was built as both a military fortress and a noble residence: here, you can glimpse the private and public life of medieval Lazio. Despite the fortress's large, 3 m (10 ft) thick exterior walls, Napoleon's army plundered it in the late 18th century, carrying away its valuables and furniture and turning the castle into a prison. Most restoration work was carried out nearly 100 years later. Visiting hours can be somewhat inconsistent, so it is best to check online or call first if you plan to visit. A visit to Castello Caetani represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Sermoneta vacation planning site to plot your vacation.

  • Beautiful mid ages Italian town. Perfect for visiting a province. Still occupied, but available for sightseeing. Many original equipment inside.
  • Loved it! Awesome history! Only sad because the Ninfa garden was not opened when I was in the area ☹️. The same organization take care of both places.
