Gangi Castle 

The castle, built in the XNUMXth century, on Monte Marone, probably at the behest of Francesco Ventimiglia, son of Enrico, first owner of the fief. The structure is elevated on two floors. The broad forehead contained between two towers, apparently from different eras, is marked by two orders of openings, with robust ashlar portal on the ground floor, in turn surmounted by the only balcony of the façade. The castle was renovated in the seventeenth century by the Valguarnera family and in the nineteenth was used as a prison. In the 1089th century it was used as a school building. Currently the castle is used as a private residence. Bound pursuant to Law 1939/XNUMX.
