  • Beautiful ruins that are undergoing renovation but which gives a pretty spotted what was supposed to be Castle to the screen. Explanatory books are very well done, formulated, and interesting for small and large understands all (nice illustration). Very pretty light.

  • A must see! The castle is in a beautiful location and the top, we have a splendid view of the surroundings. Undergoing renovation according to the techniques used in the middle ages. The kids loved! My son really enjoyed to operate the crane wheel! Visit to do!

  • So, as much as I would like to rate this higher, hard facts need to be told. (as of August 2016) The castle is in an extremely poor state, and, seeing as they are reconstructing it with medieval means, it will stay that way for many years to come, so I didn't think it was really that impressive. The view however, is definitely worth it (top of a cliff) , as long as you're not expecting to see even half a medieval castle still standing. THAT BEING SAID. The medieval village under the castle is definitely very impressive and there are some nice gift shops there, including a woodworker who does some interesting necklaces. (really, go and check it out) All in all its a very rustic place that fits in well with the medieval atmosphere, and even if the castle itself isn't too interesting, the village more than makes up for it.
  • The village is on a hill over looking a gorgeous valley, with a spectacular castle ruin on a cliff. The people are friendly and the historic plaques make for incredibly interesting reading. A great stop for everyone!
  • This village is a beauty where we have the feeling that the time is stopped. It is loaded with history by trampling its cobblestones and each streets hide an authenticity. The castles worth a visit because the view is amazing and a big congratulations to the owner. I am pleased to participate in workshops on the way age thanks to volunteers who pass on their passion. A Council not pass in the region without if stop.

  • Very beautiful castle with a nice restore in progress. Don't hesitate to go around to see the roads from different angles, the differences are striking.

  • It's a place, like many others, which remained authentic.
