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 under restoration until at least October 2015, you can still visit the grounds and admire the vistas.
