It is a breathtaking castle, very huge and magnificent. You can stroll in its corridors. The cemetery is especially interesting. You can have beautiful view on the island of Capri or on Sorrento peninsula from the terrace of the cafe.

Worth popping up for the view and tranquility alone. Enjoyed the English translated pamphlet we received which made a wee tour on our own easy. We visited the cafe near the nuns monastery/ church which served superb cake (orange cake and chocolate cake both delicious)...More

The elevator is now perfectly working (doesn’t work for one day only). If the lack of the elevator could be a problem you can always ask the ticket office.
