Donnafugata Castle

Donnafugata Castle - Chiara Dell'Albani

 Visit of the imposing castle once property of the Arezzo family (now property of Ragusa Municipality), which inspired movie-maker Luchino Visconti for its famous “Il Gattopardo” drawn from the homonymous novel.

The architectural style is mostly late eight-hundred, with some Venice –gothic elements.

Remarkable rooms  are the waiting-room, the music-hall, the mirrors room and the enourmous park where you can admire, among other things, giant Ficus Magnolia and a stone labyrinth.

Two hrs visit
