You must do this hike for the view that it offers on the way to the Castle. There are one or two eating options on top.

Its worth the journey up. Once you see the exhilarating views from top. Must visit place. We enjoyed the weather too as it was bright and sunny.

Probably the best thing about making it to the top is the views. There are several hikes you can take, anything from just doing the hill, to a 10-mile round trip from the base of the hill. The vineyards are lovely.

The view is superb on a clear day. A demanding walk up and easier walk down through steep vineyards.

Good view. It took about 35 minutes for me to hike up to the top but I didn't have the proper shoes. If I lived there, I would go there at all my free times.
