  • Highly recommended. The castle looks amazing and the Rampart walks are amazing. Easily worth the price. The place is absolutely beautiful and the views are astounding - so much I chose to propose to my girlfriend there.
  • Magical medieval village and castle experience. Plan to stay for hours. Have a meal or just a coffee and take time to shop. I suggest the castle tour by voiced machine, but it can be frustrating to use.
