Staying not too far away from Posada, this was an easy must see / must do. Warned for the steep climb, but not wearing the best shoes, we found our way up to the top. The view was lovely, the signs were informative. Even tried...More

Walking up to the castle is steep and a bit frightening, but wear good shoes and when you arrive to the top, it’s worth the walk. The view is very nice and if you dare, climb to the top of the stairs inside the castle.

The Castello provides a magnificent view as well as written explanations along the hike up. It can not be recommended for people who have walking issues. Posada is a truly hidden pearl

it's worth it.Super view from the top. Also there is a bar to grab a beer or a coffee. You need shoes to go up. Flip flops not very good for the walk.

3Euro per adult to get up there. Beautiful views, slightly scary open windows in the tower, watch your kid all the time!

Beautiful view. From here it is possible to see all the village, the amazing cost and the mountains. Really recommended

Great views from the top! You do have to climb up a ladder and through a roof hatch at the top, ideally wear shorts or something under skirt/dress, more dignified when you climb back down! and sensible shoes :)

very worthwhile climbing through the town to see this beautiful tower with panoramic views from the top. If one doesn't have time/transport to venture into the interior of Sardinia, then this gives one a feeling of the landscape behind and enchanting glimpses of the agricultural...More
