I was impressed by the amazing view over the surroundings. Take into account that you need to climb a bit, but if you are not in a hurry or tired already the visual reward from the top of the hill it worth the effort.

For a fortress built in the 13th century and not really maintained, the site looks really good. The access road is adequate, and there's a 15 minutes walk from where you can leave your car. No parking tho. There are no facilities for food or...More
