Stayed at the nearby Capo D’Orso Hotel, it’s a short but steep walk up from the hotel to get here, but it is worth it. Costs 3 euros to get in, once you get to the top the views across the bay are incredible. You...More

A well maintained path with lots of places to sit, rest and take in the views on the way up. Well worth the effort, superb views along the coastline all the way to Palau

It is a short visit with a nice view on the see from the top of the hill. The path is well built for little children as well. So it s worth to have a look if you pass nearby.

There is a 3 euro parking, then a 3 euro ticket to access the path, clearly made for tourist, leading to the bottom of the giant rock. It doesn't look a bear from this point of view, but it's still an incredibly shaped rock, like...More

Definitely a must do if you are in Palau. Rent bikes or a vespa in town and make your way up the hill. It was very hot in September, so bring water! There are signs leading the way. Pay three euros at the entrance and...More
