  • Visit the fortress-a real journey back in time. The atmosphere of the middle ages is felt immediately, as the fortress is thrown on horizon: round towers with battlements, a deep ravine, the bridge. Unfortunately, within all looks much sadder: dilapidated shrine and Chapel, which is now closed mesh-that's all that is available for inspection. Winter is invited to walk only along a narrow fenced with ropes track. You can scramble up on the wall at your own risk and it is said that during the summer, a nice view of the Bay in the winter are visible only to the bare branches of the trees.

  • The atmosphere of the middle ages. Impressive size. Steep ditch was once filled with water to restore and repair to the drawbridge. A great place to be.

  • Thanks for the tip in this application. Really the only thing cevelizovannoe this place filling! Next to nothing. About fortress! Very nice, but probably advise there come summer. Were there in January. Us spacious, but .... agrees with the review, many places are closed fence. Get nowhere (in the winter it is more dangerous than summer IMHO). Fortress requires now, and very sorry that it all remains in a stage of "fence"). In general.... fortress for viewing I recommend. General impression. By the way next to the dressing is a small village, and who came with the card, you can withdraw the money in a local savings bank, in the output (SAT) it works to 15:00.

  • Three or four years ago it was possible to enjoy views toward the Bay-actually, this is the only thing which can enter the fortress. Now all closed down fences to get nowhere, nothing but decaying walls do not show. Wooden gates track did not put benches in the fortress of doing absolutely nothing, nothing at all. Would be better if this tree is allowed for the construction of one or two viewing platforms, even by raising the entrance fee. In short, the scoop in its purest form. Another three years you can not ride there, wait for changes for the better. There is a plus: appears to the left of the entrance a large shield with objects for visit-applaud, it was interesting to identify a place on next time. Share free ideas: 1. Erect viewing platforms towards the Gulf of Mexico. 2. Put the information boards that tell the history of the fortress, with details about the assault, demolition of walls, tombs in the territory, etc. Now the shield there, but dry like a recipe from the hospital, no interest. 3. Put benches! Sit nowhere except in the machine and quickly leave in horror and disappointment.

  • A very atmospheric place. Here, the imagination draws a picture of the distant past. The history of this place is very rich. The fortress has not restored that lends even more emotions. It is exactly those walls that stand for centuries, and these rocks and trees, "seen" history. From the South-Western side of the fortress-breakage. Earlier, say there was a navigable river, linking with the Bay. Ships from the sea came right to the walls of the fortress.

  • Fortress in terrible condition, no reconstruction is not involved. Only delayed the all metal grid that stones raining down. In some places are worth any wacky metal fences. All in a very upadnicheskom condition and collapses. The fortress itself would be very beautiful if local authorities finally started it.

  • The first time was here in the eighties, on the boards through a ravine crossed with dad. Since then, not much has changed, but began the fight for security. Sorry do not recover, but interesting touch to the 13th century.
