Fodor's Expert Review Castello Saraceno

Taormina Military Site

An unrelenting 20-minute walk up the Via Crucis footpath takes you to the church of the Madonna della Rocca, hollowed out of the limestone rock. Above it towers the medieval Castello Saraceno. Although the gate to the castle has been locked for decades, it's worth the climb just for the panoramic views.
