  • Stunning. Long and short walks. Pay for parking at park entrance.
  • Super
  • Beautiful and well preserved site. But I find it pathetic to charge parking 6.50 euros to stay half an hour. A review the most suitable rates. Made to pay to preserve the site is understandable, but there are limits.

  • Beautiful place, but the parking is too expensive. In addition, the cable car and TV seat are often closed during certain holidays. Too bad.
