If you're looking for a nice walk with lovely views this is a great place to come. Car park costs and make sure you come on a clear day otherwise you'll miss out on the fantastic views.

The original monument before it was renovated in 1935 was amazing, but it was rebuild in minimalist style. The sheer size, the statues and the view are still impressive, and it's a nice walk to the top.

ran to the castle from the nearby train station, amazing views from top. Should carry water since could not find water fountains. The castle/ruin is also cool.
