It was quite a walk up, but worth it! It’s beautiful and very rich in history. Even if you can’t read Spanish, it’s worth doing.

This was my 7 year old son's favorite stop on our trip. My kids loved walking through the historical house and garden. The view is fantastic. Pay attention you need to leave your bags at the bottom of the hill before you walk up.
