Castello Eurialo


Things to do with children Castles, Fortresses & Towers in Sicily Archaeological Sites in Sicily

Castello Eurialo in Syracuse is considered to be one of the greatest defensive works in the whole of Europe, erected by the tyrant Dionysius the Elder in 402 BC.

You won't be very impressed when entering the excavation area, because there are only some stone blocks, and will probably think that the visit is wasted time (I thought so first). But when you walk around you'll see how enormous the Greek Syracuse was, and you will be deeply impressed.

This extensive ruins are protected from the front by three rock-cut moats. On the 15,000 square meters you will also find 5 watchtowers, a drawbridge and walls made to protect against enemies. It still retains a number of impressive and well kept subways and tunnels that used to serve the defenders to move quickly around without being seen.

Castello Eurialo boasts a wonderful view to Syracuse.

Entrance fee (2013): € 4, reduced € 2
