Ancient castle on a medieval castel
Feb 2020
This castle was built in the 16th century on a previous medieval castle built in 1165 by the family Malaspina. Today is a private castle so it is impossible to go inside.

Kudos for Saving !
Sep 2017 • Family
Looked pretty special from down below on the beach, so we followed our noses , past the Church and up the ancient town walls and cobblestones to the Castello ! The medieval tower dates back to the 16th Century and from a Genoese house to a prison back to a house today. Private House that is , No tours, but good on them for renovating & restoring this great artifact of olden days !!

A private residence but intersting walk
May 2017 • Couples
We walked through the old town past the church, clock tower and along the medievil wall to get to the castle. An interesting walk from the Tourist Office. Stop there and get a map and directions. The castle itself is a private residence now. First documentary references date from 1165. Residence of the Captain of the people in 1637. Then a prision until 1797. Walk down the private road between the Castle and building and you will find a walking path down to Chiesa di S Andrea. This path has good views of the medievil clock tower and wall.

Attraction without access
Aug 2016 • Couples
We were surprised that this was mentioned as a local attraction, but when we found it turned out that it is a private area and we cannot even see the whole castle even from outside. It was disappointing.

A simple draw due to its proximity to other sites : what looms behind those fortress walls?
Apr 2016 • Couples
An impenetrable fortress is designed to be precisely that, and even today, in a world of bazookas and ballistic missiles, here's one castle nobody's getting into, other than by invitation. It's closed to the public and one might wonder why another of the same species might choose to live such a life.

Do they walk around in suits of armor, drink mead, maintain a functional keep and dungeon, call each other mi'lord. sire and fulsome wench? (I know folks living in Brooklyn, New York who do so regularly on weekends, but that's another story). Do they have a long history of royal blood or merely hit it big a while back in parabolic plumbing valves?

With a name like Castle San Giorgio, do they breed kimodos? I can envision the white paneled trucks now: Dragons exclusively by Saint George. Call for appointment.

For most of us, it's just a pleasantly quick shot of the camera and turn to something less tactically impenetrable beyond.

Not much to see, no access to castle.
Aug 2015 • Couples
The castle is a private residence, you can't visit it, and you can't see much from the outside. A nice walk, but not really a destination.
