Caccamo Castle

Interesting
The castle, on the site of a pre-existing fortress, built in the 11C, stands on a rocky spur. From the original building, the castle developed downwards following a spiral. In the 17C, the Amato transformed this rough fortress into an elegant aristocratic residence. After crossing the threshold of an 18C doorway, you enter the Sala della Congiura (Conspiracy Hall), where the barons conspired against William the Bad. There is a superb panoramic view from the Ghibelline tower.
