Not exceptional but probably suffered from the earthquake at the beginning of the 20th century which leveled the entire city. Had an extra exposition of live butterflies which made it a little more interesting. From the top you get some nice views... Also the only...More

The castle is so imposing, but it is basically empty. The modern sculpture garden is a treat however. Needs better explanatory signage or notes.

The castle is best viewed from the outside, because much of it is in ruins and much is not open. They have a nice exhibition of policemen over the years. It is not much of a rainy day activity because so little is open.

Definatelly recommend visiting this castle and purchasing the audio guide it will not disapoint. If you can be there just before sunset you will have the opportunity to witness a magnificent sunset with castle as a back drop

The castle has nothing inside.. But the views are worth it! Entrance is free ans there are postres in all languages telling the place's history.

This tour is not suitable for women, visiting on their own. One of the old tour guides is very unprofessional in his behavior and can't keep his hands to himself. Although the tour is free, you get a very unpleasant experience in return.
