Lovely views with a bit of history along the way. Great for walking the dog but does get a bit windy.

Fantastic historic walk around the town. It can be as long or short as you wish as there are exits into the town.

Walked around the remains of the castle and ramparts on a very windy day but we still enjoyed it. Interesting history and still got the cannons and original structures from the wars centuries ago. Go here if in the area
