Loved wandering around the ruins of this castle. Not crowded in the late afternoon. We missed the English speaking tour, so we used the one from Rick Steves' book and it was great. Quite a climb from the town of you are on foot but...More

one thing I loved about these ruins is that they had labels for what things were. and the humongous cave that held the wines was really cool. I don't know if I would've gone out of my way to see the ruins, if we weren't...More

My sister and I thought about skipping this castle and we are glad we didn’t. It’s worth the 10 euro.

We completely enjoyed our time in these ruins. The view from the top it was amazing and the open spaces were fun to explore. We managed to get a feel for most everything we wanted to see within about 30 minutes, so I’m not sure...More

Although this was one of the castles recommended, it was hard to fully appreciate as they did not have any tours in English. Given they were doing some repairs, you could only access the tunnels with the tours. Still a nice visit with many ruins...More

If you have only 1 hour 25 mins then I strongly recommend to take car or taxi to reach up so that you can atleast spend 30-40 mins at the castle. Coming down is easy and faster will take 15 mins so you can chose to walk down... More
