A magnificent edifice with magnificent views, a memorial to a man who was controversial even in his own life time. The vandalism is shameful, the man is long dead so destroying ones own history and damaging tourist sites is pretty stupid. There is a good...More

A popular place for weddings and singers and tourists. Many people all over the place posing. Need to have some litter pickup. Too much rubbish all over the place. Great views and feeling of space and grandeur.

If you want to learn more about history then this is one of the places you have to visit!!! Steps make it also great for kids to entertain and exhaust themselves. Beautiful views and a lovely restaurant to enjoy something sweet to eat.

The monument is impressive and worth the drive from the city. However the coffee shop is the real treat with good food and great views. The walking paths are also worth trying. I never tire of going there.
