Castle of Milazzo
Milazzo * Sicily * Italy

Is the most important monument of the city: one between the great castles, national asset and the European Union, it covers an area of ​​more than 7 hectares, is a real town. The first fortifications date back around the Neolithic period (4000 BC). Later, around the VIII-VII century BC, thanks to the intervention of the Greeks, who called it Mylai, the agglomeration took shape and grew larger, becoming an acropolis and, thanks to Roman-Byzantine, a castrum.

In 843, the Arabs gave birth to the first nucleus of the present castle, the ruins of the old dominations. Subsequently, the Normans and the Swabians, joined by other structures, the Aragonese it conformed the defensive system, the Spaniards surrounded it with massive walls. Interesting detail is a stylized drawing the lava rock in a corner of the medieval walls. According to some experts is the eye of the falcon Horus, the Egyptian symbol of invincibility, according to others it is a beetle, in whose eyes the sun goes straight on the day of the vernal equinox. Milazzo's people know the evolution of the seasons.

In 1928 came to light a cage of torture, which contained a human skeleton missing the lower limbs. Much curiosity was at a scientific level by Italian and foreign experts. Today the cage is a relic of the Criminal Museum of Rome and is the only example of its kind in continental Europe.

Another monument of great interest is the Old Cathedral. It is located within the walled city, and its construction was begun in 1608 from designs by Michelangelo's student, Camillo Camilliani. The Cathedral was built to replace the old Mother Church of St. Mary, demolished in 1568 for military-strategic reasons. The decorative work and completion of the new work continued until about 1700. Between the Old Cathedral and the Castle, there is the restored Palace of the jurors, then seat of the Senate of the city.

I personally like the renaissance and baroque palaces and chateaus of France the most. So beautiful, elegant and not quite as over the top as the multicolored, exuberant palaces of Central- and East-Europe.
