Castello dell'Imperatore Prato

  • CASTELLO DELL’IMPERATORE (EMPORER CASTLE)

    This is a huge imposing structure with high crenellated walls and towers. Built for the medieval emperor and King of Sicily Frederick II, it was built on top of a previous fortification of which two towers remain. Building stopped when Frederick died and the interior was never fully completed. Although some destruction took place during the fascist regime, much reconstruction work has taken place and is ongoing. It is possible to climb the stairs up to the top of the castle walls and walkways which have fantastic views over the surrounding city of Prato.
