Castello di San Terenzo Reviews
The castle is a dramatic medieval building sitting over the small village and opposite another castle in the town of Lerici. If you are in the area this is the prettiest part of the Golfo Dei Poeti... more »
Well worth the 20 min walk along the coast from Lerici, this quaint castle is only 2 euros to look around but as above be aware that it closes at 1.00pm and doesn’t reopen till late afternoon. more »
Upon a good bicycle tour (2004) we hit that place. Climbing up to the tower. But found no entrance... The little beach is so nice. Had a night in that charming village. We enjoyed the good local food and drinks. Nice environment. Good scenic views. Worse to go!
Neighboring Lerici Castle, San Terenzo Castle closes the western end of the Gulf of Poets, and defends the small maritime village of San Terenzo with its quadrangular fortress. It cannot boast an ancient history; it seems it was built in the 1400s, by countrymen 'with no artillery, stairs, munitions, or guards' against the raids by the Saracen pirates, the same Turks that gave the name to the grotto that opens up into the rocky promontory where the castle stands.
