  • It's nice to go up on the bridge, walking through it, enjoy the view and imagine the ancient paths. But there is no historical information about the place. Could put up a sign with explanations to the tourists.

  • I was surprised, on the way to the beauty she Saw appears and is a very interesting surprise, I enjoyed to be no indication that would be after the curve, because the surprise was a highlight.

  • It's an interesting site, but it looks abandoned. Has no access to go up on the bridge, which is a shame.

Where to stay in Conservatoria

Four main roads lead into the town, and along all of these you'll find a good selection of simple bed and breakfasts, as well as larger hotels with ample grounds and good access to the surrounding natural highlights. The modest town center offers a nice selection of two-floor bed and breakfasts, with little to distinguish between them apart from the attractiveness of their interiors and a small fluctuation in price. Generally speaking, the areas outside of the historical core have lodgings with more services and amenities, while in the poky town center area, there's little to tell accommodations apart from residences.
