“Stunning views, remarkable relic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

In the USA, they would sell tickets and have placards all over explaining this site. In Amalfi, you follow some small signs to some of the most stunning, achingly beautiful views I have ever photographed. Between Amalfi and Atrani, this fortress remnant is open for walking the ramparts. Well worth the hike from Pontone

Watch Tower. Built in the 15th century as part of the castle defending the sea republic of Amalfi. A place to visit.

“Great walk - knockout view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

Well worth the hike out to get to this place. Views are tremendous. Be sure to visit the belvedere higher up on the way back, and also the ruins of the old fort on the summit of the mountain. Allow a good few hours.

“Astounding views of Amalfi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

It's a bit of a climb, even if you go by car, there still is a good distance to walk to it, but it's mostly in the shadow and once you get there you can see all the coast ... breathtaking,really!!!
