Amazing, adventurous history
6/2019 • Pariskunnat
Could have been a five, except for some maintenance issues, such as weeds and some of the interactive displays not working. Otherwise, this adventure was much more than we expected. It was great to see the old castle, and then a lot of the additional info about the area and the interactive displays was amazing. Gave a great intro to the history of the whole area, including the many castles, battles and key players. Loved the old buildings and scenery. They have a lift for disabled/strollers, and you may not get to see 100% but you will see most of the sights.

Beautiful Medieval fortress
11/2018 • Kaverit
Sarzana used to be an important stopover of the Via Francigena, the road to France used by those who wanted to travel from Rome to Paris. It also sits on the border between Tuscany and Liguria, two regions which were often at war during that period. Because of this, Sarzana is home to two impressive and very well preserved fortresses, both worth a visit and a detour.

Sarzana's Highlight.
8/2018 • Pariskunnat
The Firmafede Fortress was built in the second half of the 15th century on the ashes of the former 13th century Pisan fortification.
It represents an important example of Florentine military architecture of the end of the 15th century.
In 1496 Sarzana again passed under the control of the Republic of Genoa; the Florentine project, however, was completed during the sixteenth century with the construction of the walls that, starting from the fortress, encircled the entire city.In the nineteenth century.
With the annexation of the republic to the kingdom of Savoy and the radical changes of defensive strategies, the fortress was first used as a police station and later as a prison until the seventies of the twentieth century.
Between 1985 and 2003, a series of restorations made the Fortress once again usable, which is now a reference point for many cultural activities, including national ones.
Opening hours are from Friday to Wednesday between 10:30 AM and 1 PM and between 4 - 7 PM, entrance fee € 6 for adults.

Very nice place to pass at least 1-2 hours with family and kids.
If in Sarzana, take a look to the exhibitions in progress and the view from above is amazing.

Time to time we like to pass some time here, where you can breath the middleages heritage of the city.

nice place in the centre of the town
8/2015 • Perhe
it's a nice fortress to visit by itself.
in summer there are plenty of events organised inside it, from concerts, to exibitions, to even the recreation of and old battle between Napoleon's troops and Austrians (this is in October if I remember correctly).

Perfect restoration!!
8/2014
I totally reccommend a visit to the "fortezza firmafede", it is very very cheap,you can buy tickets for both the fotezza firmafere and the fortezza sarzanello, which is further from the city centre than firmafede. We visited only firmafede because it was 7pm and the "fortezza sarzanello" closes at 7.30pm, while "fortezza firmafede" closes at 10pm( I think it can be very beautiful to visit afterwards, illuminated).
You can take the portable guide but there are also panels that explains to you every part of the building. With the ticked we were allowed to see an exhibit that was there in that period (without spending anything more). The restoration left me with no words, it is perfect, you can walk almost everywhere there is something important to see (I know it could seem normally, but here in Italy it is not so common!!) the only negative point is that pigeons have infested the building, but, they are doing a disinfestation ! (again, thing not so common in Italy!) so, I totally recommend a visit to this fantastic city and its buildings!!! you can see it's a city that cares for its heritage!!

wonderful historic venue

I have attended the Armadillo Acoustic Guitar Festival in Sarzanna, Italy the last 2 years. The historic fortress is a most picturesque backdrop for this great event.
