Very hot and a long way up, but worth the climb. Very interesting guided tour in English and lots to see in the castle.

Arrive early for this attraction - we arrived at 10am on Monday, and by the time we left at midday, there was a substantial queue at the entrance. We took the self - guided tour, which was full of interesting artefacts. There are interactive displays...More
