I was there with a local friend and is an amazing place, with an interesting history and beautiful view. If the sky is clear you can also see the sea. Beautiful place to see, because I love mountains and nature ans is surrounded by it.

It's not particularly rugged, although you could encounter some roots and stones. I think tennis or running shoes should be fine, as long as you watch your step.
