Admiral Nelson's Column at Trafalgar Square in London belongs to the most famous monuments in the world, but few people know that good old Horatio was also the Duke of Bronte in Sicily.

Originally the castle was a fortified monastery and remained in the Nelson family until the 1980s. There is a wonderful little English garden behind the castle, the rooms feature tiled pavements from Caltagirone and the original furniture, books and paintings of Nelson's niece. The entrance fee is low and there are guided tours.

In winter the castle closes at 17.00 h.

Entrance fee (2013): € 1,50, guided visit € 3,00, reduction for groups, school classes and visitors over 65 years, free entrance for disabled persons, schools of Maniace and Bronte, photographers and just married couples
