Small castle in the historic portion of Belmont. It is well maintained and some portions appear reconstructed. It is not very large but the story of the castle is interesting and can be read on site. It is well worth a short visit.

It sits at the top of the hill so there are very nice views of the surrounding area. If you're in the area, it's worth a visit.

Excellent location at highest point of Belmonte. Easy to find. Cheap entry fee. Nothing overly special about the place if you have seen castles elsewhere. The day we visited there was a colorful fair in the plaza near the castle entrance which added dramatically to...More

It is very small but it was clean and well treated. The exposition was kind of weak. It isn't possible to go to the best parts of the castle The price is only 2 euros

We walked up here while on our visit to Belmonte. We did not go in, but it is quite impressive from the outside. It gives the town its medieval feel. We wish we had more to time to enjoy it, but if you are walking...More
