  • In fact a few ruins remain of the Castle (which are not worth the cost of admission!) but the view from the Bay and Monaco, is beautiful and alone is worth the visit. The medieval village is well maintained, nice and clean, with free parking and toilets (just like in Italy Alassio parking 12 € a day!).

  • The medieval castle, which also has undergone several restorations, little remains, mostly ruins that give a glimpse of the fortress and the defensive function, protecting the various "gentlemen" who once lived there, and from the same village, perched on a high rocky outcrop overlooking the Mediterranean sea below. Yet, reading his story, we understand the strategic importance that assumed in the historical ups and downs that characterized. The village/medieval village is well preserved: tiny streets, houses huddled together, ancient washhouse, fountains, wrought iron balconies, stone vaults. An olive tree of more than 1000 years is a valuable asset of the village. From the main square you can enjoy a spectacular sunset on Monaco. Many excursions that depart from here and climb through the Woods, villages, heights with loop trails.

  • On the tour we saw a sign to visit a medieval city and the Castle and saw that there was time we love to visit. Beautiful village and well valued with narrow but well arranged. The castle is impressive with a view up to the Principality of Monaco. It's kinda skinny still worth paying 5 euros.
