  • We have a position that falls behind the Castle fortress, the fly. From the Castle you can get beautiful pictures of this place too. At the time it made for feeding pigeons. Pigeon's dung and in agriculture, the eggs used for painting the walls. 4 km long walk you can see the entire Valley. There is also a small waterfall a beautiful valley.
