Definitely worth a visit!

It is not that well advertised, but it is a must visit. The 365 steps is well worth climbing in the heat to get the elevated view from the top.

We arrived at mid day and it was quite warm and many people were making the climb. We managed to climb the 300+ steps, and found the views on top worthwhile, I particularly enjoyed all the bells, large and small, en route.

This is a great place to visit, I've actually been twice and would definitely go again. The view of the city is great. Lots of walking and steps, it if you take it slow and stop for breaks, it's totally fine. The AC room at the top is a nice place to stop before heading up to the very top... More
