  • A beautiful castle in which I could not get a dozen years ago because I had nearly got to fly arrived at the entrance to the Castle! But this year I was finally able to go back and I was not disappointed. Access is easy (however beware of gusts of winds) and the castle is very beautiful and there are explanations quite interesting. The view is just amazing we do not get tired! I am in love with this region which is full of beautiful places that make us full eyes!

  • Another example of man's ingenuity resourcefulness and energy. Amazing position , with views forever. Go right to the top
