  • good viewing area above the town with interesting surroundings. Well worth the effort of the shortl hill climb  more »
  • Yes the view is nice, but the sculpture of we can call in this way is somewhat obscene. A block of cement that didn't communicate anything.  more »
  • A little walk and you will have some pretty amazing views from a top. Definitley a place to take pictures  more »
