The Castle of Pantelleria


The Castle of Pantelleria is a medieval monument in lava stone used as a prison until 1975. The structure overlooks the seafront and is very evident as soon as you arrive by ship at the port of Pantelleria. The Castle is currently open from June to September and hosts numerous events during Pantelleria’s summer season. Since 2015, it has been a museum for the most important archaeological finds, including the famous Imperial Heads.
