Four flights of very very steep steps (more like a ladder) but the view at the top made it worthwhile.

Worth it to get the view. Note steep stairs, not suitable for vertigo sufferers. Entry 3 euros. OK. OK.

Take the climb, have a look and do the 360...its easy (not really suited to those with mobility issues though).

3€ to walk up a few steep stories, but if you have vertigo, beware the way down. Amazing structure and the views are stunning. Not for the faint hearted or unfit is all I can say.
