The moment you enter the place it feels like you have entered the perfect location for a famous five novel which all of us were so fond of in our teens. The castle is crumbling but that's the part of its charm. It is ideal...More

I'm always amazed how they built those castles without modern tools. This is really a nice place to make a little excursion - and viewing down in the valley - especially when the sun is going down.

This historic monument of the medieval aera is a sight to see. Those ruins of an old castle is lovely rebuild. The big tower can be climbed on some days and gives way to a awesonmme view across the country and the small city below.

Great place to take the guests for a quick castle ruin experience. Unlike many ruins, you can park very close to the top, so even the older or disabled visitors can enjoy the adventure. Wonderful photo opportunities and a nice bit of history thrown in.

This castle ruin was very easy to find you can park your car and walk up the dirt trail towards the ruin. I don't recommend strollers only because there is stairs but if it's necessary have someone help you maneuver around. The view is amazing...More
