These old walls are pretty impressive as so much is kept. The views over the village are beautiful. It is a pretty steep walk up there but worth it.

Stunning views especially if you have a good head for heights. The walls are extensive & easy to access. Definitely worth the effort to get up there.

Well worth the walk and completely free. Do keep a close eye on children though. I think this is is probably one of the most remarkable sites of the town.
