Came here to say that military only, except for special events. It is on the highest ground in the area and is cool. You can walk around the majority of it, which I recommend, there is a great view point of the beach.

The Castello towers over the town and occupies a clearly strategic command of the Adriatic. So much so that it is closed to the public. My guess would be radar and electronic surveillance would be part of the mission.

After climbing up past the Cathedral I reached a car park and barriers. The castle is occupied by the military and closed to the public. Don't bother with the climb.
