Adrano Castle

The lava stone castle, which stands on Piazza Umberto, was built in the early 14C but its foundations are Norman era. It houses the Ethno-Anthropological Museum (local crafts) and the Regional Archaeological Museum, tracing the region's history from the Neolithic to the Byzantine period (note the Banchettante or banqueting guest, a small bronze piece from a workshop on Samos, and a beautiful crater bowl on small columns from Attica), as well as an art gallery exhibiting paintings, artefacts and sculptures from the 17C-20C.
