This gives an overview of the town. You can drive or walk. Be warned the walk is really steep. You really should have a look!

Beautiful view from top of hill especially as the sun is setting. The town lights up when the sun goes down. The presentation was fair, as I had trouble in understanding what the commentator was saying

We stumbled upon this gem. Lots of history to discover and the views are outstanding. Undercover area was great for stretching our legs and refuelling our stomachs after a long drive.
