There was a loggia area where the wedding was held - a great spot! Didn't see much else other than the courtyard and some of the archaeological exhibits - but those were interesting. The castle is in a lovely rural area just outside of Tolentino - stop by of you are in the area, but probably not a destination castle on its own.

We were on the autostrada and saw this small castle. There was one other couple there so we were generally able to wander about undisturbed. It was a great find, easy to access and well worth the admission.

The castle is quite interesting, nice and has been totally restructured. This could be negative but the works have been done respecting styles and architerctural characteristics and everything is kept in very good conditions.

The castle is interesting in its reconstruction. It is good to be able to see areas that were used as cellars and stables etc even though it is not furnished. You can also go to the top of one of the towers. The museum pieces were fascinating with works from Prehistoric times. I was particularly interested in pottery from 5th and 4 th century BC Athens. Quite easy to access the castle as it's not far out of Tolentino.

This wonderfully restored/preserved fortress is easy to access from the highway beside which it stands. As noted by other reviewers, much of the facility is empty and thus somewhat disappointing. Other rooms do contain some displays but there was very little English so we found it more challenging to learn and appreciate the history of the site. Great view from the ramparts, though.
