Nel corso dei suoi otto secoli di storia ha ospitato carcerati e sovrani, ha vissuto rapimenti romanzeschi e furenti assalti, ha respirato il sale del mare e lo zolfo della lava. Da non perdere
Il Castello Ursino fu fondato da Federico II di Svevia nel XIII secolo. Oggi è sede del museo civico della città etnea. La costruzione, è a pianta quadrata, con lati di 50 metri, con quattro torri.
Un sacco di cose da vedere al suo interno, peccato per l'illuminazione dei quadri (decisamente poco curata) e per la disposizione.. Nel complesso troppo confusionario... Bisogna curarlo di più!
Costruito tra il 1239 e il 1250, il Castello sorgeva su un promontorio circondato dal mare, ma a causa dell’eruzione del 1669 prima, e del terremoto del 1693 poi, se ne allontanò.
