 Cda Bastione, 11 - Capo D'Orlando (ME)

The Bastione di Capo d'Orlando Castle, located on a plateau overlooking the Malvicino district, is a mighty castle dating back to the second half of the 16th century.
The bastion initially performed the function of control and sighting and then became, until the beginning of the twentieth century, a noble residence. In ancient times it was called Torre del Trappeto due to the presence, in its vicinity, of flourishing cannamela plantations, from which sugar cane was obtained, and of trappeti, mills, used for its transformation. After the death of its last owner, the English M.E. Johnson, in the first half of the twentieth century, the castle fell into disrepair until it was purchased and restored by the Municipality of Capo d’Orlando.
Today the Bastione Castle has become a location for cultural and recreational events.
