You can either walk up or drive. Driving is a challenge and the road is narrow and not in great shape. Either way, it's worth it as the views are wonderful. It's an interesting place to be as it just reeks of history. The wall is terrific to walk on. But there is no safety net. It is free to... 更多
We undertook a nice after lunch walk to the summit and it was well worth the effort. The countryside was bathed in flowers and looked beautifully green. The castle walls are well maintained and are a delight to climb up to for the views.
