A fine visit. Not that much to see but interesting history. The castle route is well thought out. The view is awesome though.

An amazing historical site worth the 6€ entry! It’s small and quaint and doesn’t have a lot of people visiting all the time. It’s very well preserved and a deff stop and see if you’re in the area!
Very well cared for landmark with exceptional views and interesting history. Easy guided tour, available with audio guide via an app, very reasonable entry fee. A nice day out with family.
