This small castle monument is one of its kind. The opening hours are a bit annoying and the numbered path can be hard to follow but it's money's worth. You will take some beautiful pictures.

We really didn't expect to find such a beautiful castle, located in a place with great panoramic breathtaking views. Really worth visiting. Entrance is only 2€, but a downside, you can not pay with a card, only cash.
