We visited on a perfect, sunny, cool day in August. We hiked to the top which was just challenging enough without being too much. Amazing ruins to explore and spend time. Breathtaking views from the top that make the hike so worth it. My children...More

Two option when accessing to the parking, climbing free of charge up to the ruins of the castle. The slope is pretty steep and good shoes and physical conditions are needed. The view is very nice. Additional option is to pay around 10€ to walk...More

We were told it would take about 20 minutes. It ended up taking us 18 minutes and is about a half mile. It is somewhat strenuous, but the path is wide and you can take breaks as needed. We did the hike with our three young... More
