Gorizia Castle occupies a hill above the city, providing panoramic views of the area. The city's ancient heart, the castle survived numerous modifications over time, changing its function from administrative center to prison. Bombed during World War I, the structure later underwent painstaking renovation to bring back its medieval look. Inside, visitors can explore a museum dedicated to the Middle Ages, with reproduction of various period sidearms. Also there is a music room with replicas of ancient instruments.

  • This is a wonderful example of a medieval castle. It is a ruin but well maintained as a tourist attraction. Be prepared to do some uphill walking.

  • Great place to visit for a very cheap price (3€ pp). Close to downtown. The castle is very beautiful and well mantained.

  • Nice old castle on the top of the hill in Gorizia, recommended to visit and enjoy medieval times.
  • Beautiful castle with beautiful views of the city. The Middle Age museum inside the castle also is very interesting. The surrounding area is also very green and enjoyable. Really worth a visit!
