“Don't expect to see a castle!”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

The charm of this is the view from up the hill, the green areas, the waterfall but not the castle as there is none. It's only some very small ruins left. However, it is a nice relaxing walk.

“Walk and don't take the elevator!”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

This is a great excursion on a mild day - maybe less appealing in the summer heat. The views along the way are most rewarding and you can start on the beach or city side depending on your mood.

“Superbe!”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

Take the free elevator up to the top. Beautiful views in all directions. There's even a park for children to play. Beautiful decorations, mosaic etc. Take the walkway down to Old Town.
Beautiful views all around. Kids loved the giant jungle gym.

“Fabulous views!”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

Fabulous views, great park and playground if you're travelling with kids, and a little café at the top. We went up as part of the with the Segway tour, but there's a tram/open-air train that goes up there if you want to hike it!
