  • I was able to keep it to myself by the crow. Please note that even if you are hungry at 8 o'clock, you will not be able to meet anywhere.

  • Well-maintained castle with wonderful and lush rooms inside. We were there on Saturday 02 November and didn't even pay the entrance fee. Definitely not to be missed.
