Castello Saraceno is on the top of the rock Monte Tauro, overlooking Taormina and its surroundings. According to to tradition it was built by Arabs, however, nothing much is known about the period in which the castle was made. It s possible that the Muslims had their stronghold in the castle in 1079 during the siege by the Normans. The exterior walls have been preserved very well, while the interiors are almost all collapsed.
