Before being bought by the local government and (impressively) renovated/restored starting in the 60s onwards, this castle was abandoned, ruined, and its stones had been pilfered to build nearby houses. So don’t expect to find in it lovely remains of a time long past. All...More

On a less than heatwave day this was a good destination for a young family. There were lots of interactive information booths, puzzles and games for the children to play with. It all felt new, fresh and well maintained. The building is stunning in a...More
