  • The Castle is beautiful. The streets are narrow and full of tourists, but worth visiting! The walk towards the Castle and towers takes 45 minutes from the parking.

Inside, protected by thick walls, the cannons, arranged on three floors, could fire in all directions through flared loopholes to the outside. This great bastion could have withstood a siege by itself.
