Incredible story in the small town of Pizzo. Lovely views of the sea and the town from the castle. Anna from dolcevitapizzo will guide you throughout the tour with all the history of the castle.

The wax figures made the castle come alive and the historical setting at the time of King Murat was very interesting. Views from the castle were also great. This is a very good place to take children! They will love it!

Situated high above the coast at Pizzo this castle gives a fascinating account of the last days of Murat, Napoleon Bonaparte's brother-in-law. Life size figures in the cells show the captivity of Murat and his soldiers. Explanations are only in Italian. Armoury, costumes and letters add to a very interesting and well laid out collection. The view from the battlements is breathtaking.
