21 rooms are open tothe public, the walk through the castle, up and down narrow stairways is almost more instructive than the exhibits. The view from the top floor of the tower is a must.

It was fun and interesting to walk through. Learned some history and saw what life was like when Pitiligano was first built. I recommend this Museum.

Like a labyrinth with so many winding staircases, the building is interesting but the exhibition of religious artifacts is dull and there is little attempt to bring history alive.
