Although the funicular was closed when we visited, the steep climb up the cobbled path proved worthwhile as the 360 degree views from the summit over the city are splendid - especially on a clear day.

Fine view over the city. Easy to appreciate its strategic significance. Be a bit careful when walking on the stoned path.

The climb up is not too bad but I shouldn’t have worn platform soles as the cobbled surface is a brit tricky to negotiate especially on descent. Worth the little effort for the view though. Oh, should have mentioned, there is a funicular - but...More
