It is a very special place, built around 1200 there is a chapel inside the place and the constructions is unbeleavable. It is a must do if you are in the zone.

Dont come here if you are expecting a Disney style feature. The charm is in the history and understanding how it happenned - it's captivating and worth a detour

This was by far the best thing we visited on the lake. Easy to get to via boat and impressive pictures can be taken from the water. Excellent gift shop!
