Castillo Sohail Reviews
Tog en promenad hit, magisk utsikt åt alla håll! Bara ruinen kvar, så det finns inget annat att se. Men det är gratis och jag gillar att det är öppet för allmänheten. Rekommenderas! more »Took a walk here, magical view in all directions! Only the ruin remains, so there is nothing else to see. But it's free and I like that it's open to the public. Recommended!
Realmente no nos esperabamos encontrarnos este castillo tan bien conservado. Nos llevamos una grata sorpresa. Se puede pasear tranquilamente. La vista es fenomenal con el rio muy cerca. more »We didn't really expect to find this well-preserved castle. We got a pleasant surprise. You can take a leisurely stroll. The view is phenomenal with the river very close.
Only appears to be open on Sundays due to the shows and events being held in and around it. A lot of work has been done in the last few years to conserve and restore, and it is possible to walk around the battlements and cannon battery. A bit of a climb but well worth the effort
