  • Beautiful work of almost 1000 years. Very well maintained, is a veritable fortress. The tour shows us little Windows portholes, weapons and tricks, secret chambers and even a medieval health vase. In the center of the complex an artesian well, also well maintained. Worth knowing this attraction.

  • Very well preserved castle. The tour guide was good...very informative but very rigid in her presentation. 
  • Visit just outside (the entrance to the courtyard is still surcharge: € 10 on family ticket ..., to visit some interiors have to do another ticket ...). It's the typical medieval castle that sits atop a hill, impressive looking and austere, if you don't visit the inside (we have visited because we had no time) but perhaps not even worth a stop. However, there is in my opinion an attraction "unmissable".
