The castle is on tip of the hill and is a bit of a hike up some steep steps- but worth seeing. The views from the castle are amazing. To us, the greatest thing was how it was built so long ago!! Wonderful!

Came to Agropoli for a quick visit and walked around the old medieval town. The castle is really beautiful and well kept, impressive surprise!

The castle is lovely at night time as it is lit up and well presented. During the day, the views are most certainly worth the walk! A great spot!

Nice climb to the top. There was no one there supervising the building, so we assumed it was free. Beware of the flocks of school kids who come in and scream.

Lovely castle which is not too strenuous to walk around. Fantastic views over the Cilento coast and Gulf of Salerno
