Castle Brown

Located on a promontory high above the sea level, Castle Brown overlooks the bay and offers a sweeping view of the harbour. Dating back to the 1400s, it served as a fortress for years, guarding Portofino with its majestic figure. Nowadays, Castle Brown houses exhibitions and special events, boasting a Mediterranean garden that flourishes with roses and local flora.

Do & See

Nestled in the Regional Park of Portofino, scenic walking trails along the coastline or high uphill are just a few steps away. Numerous boat trips also start from Portofino's bustling port: the city's surrounding area is a marine sanctuary, perfect for enjoying the underwater world or just swimming in emerald crystal water. But in the end it's the city itself that makes Portofino such an alluring travel destination: the charm of the old fishing village coexists with boutiques, restaurants and art galleries, in a mix of maritime traditions and modern fashion.
