We walked up from the centre of town (20min), the castle itself is pretty boring and not that old (in the Italian scheme of things), it's a nice location to take photos of the river and town.

The views are fantastic, but the best bit for me was the little church with very important and unusual mediaeval frescoes including one showing the stages of decomposition of the corpse of Saint Makarios. The entrance fee is worth it for that alone!

After a few days sitting on the beach I pulled on the hiking boots and walked from Bosa Marina to Bosa following the road on the far side of the river. Crossing the bridge into Bosa and then through the narrow streets of the old...More

The castle itself is nothing special, but it offers a great 360 degree view of Bosa and the surrounding countryside.

Worth the walk up for amazing views of Bosa. Admission fee not too bad. No toilets at the top. Meander through the lovely streets.

Well worth the short uphill walk (we were a family of 5) but I would say it might be trickier with a pushchair owing to the cobbles and steps. Thankfully our 2 year old walks everywhere so not an issue. It was beautiful and well...More
