You must definitely go up and see the Kale. But remember it is definitely a challenge to go up the steep hill, especially in the heat 40°C, so grab a cold drink before you head off. The signs are nice and clear towards the castle...More

Follow the signs to Kalaja to find your way to the fortress. It's a relatively short but steep hike from the town that takes about 15 minutes (don't even try driving a car part way up the very steep and narrow road). Entrance is free...More
