Well worth the 20 min walk along the coast from Lerici, this quaint castle is only 2 euros to look around but as above be aware that it closes at 1.00pm and doesn’t reopen till late afternoon.

Pretty small castle. Nothing much special. Offers nice views of the the coastline. At the time, there was a Frankenstein exposition. That one was worthless. A couple of posters, some texts about Shelley and all in Italian

Interesting attraction, it's a pity that is not properly valorized. From the top terrace the panorama on the gulf is astonishing.
