It was built by Senator of the Kingdom called Barone Corrado Arezzo in 800 and it became an important venue for social gatherings during the Umberto 1 reign.
Around this wonderful castle running legends, among which the most famous is that one of a woman who was prisoner inside it. This woman was identified in the Queen Bianca of Navarra who was imprisoned by the perfidious Count Bernardo Cabrera (Lord of the County of Modica), in a room of the castle from which she managed to escape through the tunnels which led into the countryside surrounding the castle. Hence, the dialect name “Ronnafugata” meaning “woman escaped”. The visit will allow you to explore the interior of the Castle and its gardens.
This tour, along with the others which belong to the “Typical week for the tourist”, is always available. The aim is to enable visitors to choose a tour for every day of their stay.
