In Villaputzu is possible visiting the ruins of two castles: one is near Porto Corallo, while the other is far 10 kilometers from the residence (in the north side). The castle “Gibas” was built in VI century by Spanish. It is very near to the sea; in fact it was built in order to fight Arabian invasions, which were very frequent in those periods. The castle is located near the ancient tower of Porto Corallo.
The other castle is far ten kilometers from the residence; it was built on a hill few centuries ago (XII century). It was owned by Aragonese and the Carroz family. It is possible to see its ruins from the road SS 125. There is a little and simple way (to walk on foot) which takes directly on the top of the castle. Its strategic position allows seeing and controlling the surrounding territory very well; from the top of the hill there is a very wonderful view.
