Fodor's Review

The southern tip of Ortygia island is occupied by this castle built by Frederick II (1194–1250), until recently an army barracks, from which there are fine sea views. Though the castle itself is currently under ongoing restorations, you can still visit the grounds and admire the vistas. There's also a small museum with information about the castle's history and artifacts found during excavations.
