The mount is quite easy to reach from the main town. I would say it's just like 15 mins going up with stairs. It's quite small and good for a quiet time enjoying the sunset. The problem is there are too many people! I reached...More

On a hot day don't be fooled by how difficult this climb is, it's not mountain trekking at all but it is a lot of stairs. That said, it is totally worth it. Beautiful, unspoilt views of the surrounding area.

For a minimal entry fee it is worth taking the time to climb the stairs and note the symbolic statues along the way. Take time to sit and reflect on the beauty of the area
