  • The castle is nice even in its ruins, you cannot find any attraction there just look around and shoot some photos from the bay. The museum is not tematic, not interesting but shamelessly expensive. Not worth buying it however the stuff stricktly call us. Scam!!!
  • Thr hiking track is not well maintained, i will recommend google maps to keep tracking the location. The view from the top of castel is absolutely worth it.
