This castle is a great place to explore ruins and marvel in ancient architecture. For just a couple of euro you can climb through the castle walls and up to the turrets. On a clear day the views are quite impressive. The castle isn’t polished...More

There aren't many castles that you can actually go in and have free reign of. This was a pretty amazing experience. The host was very knowledgeable and friendly, and clearly cared about the castle and its history. But note, the steps are steep and narrow,...More

the castle it's not well preserved, and there're no rooms or furniture, just the walls and the towers. the price ticket of 3€ it's ok for what you get, you can wonder around the castle freely and climb the three towers. unfurtunately the towers tops...More
