    Nice ruined fortress at the top with awesome views. The monastery in the top section also a highlight. Well worth a visit if you are in area.

    Beautiful views, lots of steps and walking if your into that. 7 churches that sit in top of a mountain in a fort. Feels like your in a game of thrones set
