I first visited this site last year, however, when I went this year, there was a note on the door stating that the Castle had closed in July. There was no mention of why it closed or if it would open again. Such a pity.

Looking up it's history it's pleasing to see there has been lots of money spent on its restoration. Unfortunately it is used during the summer season for concerts and is closed out of season. But lovely to walk around and see the grounds.

Couldn't go inside, which was a shame. I'm not sure if people say there is events there? But nice to walk around. Great views. Benches to sit on when up there.

It was very nice there. Beautiful views, many different food to test and eat, herb and spices. I have bought tea and a ceramic bowl♥️ The picture is taken from Miramar Shooping center on the bus.

Climbed a very steep hill only to find everything locked, no sign stating when we should return so cannot help much. Very beautiful views of the surrounding area from the top of the hill.

We were staying in the Palace hotel and had a really good view if this feature. Quite a decent climb to the top but well worth it for the views The gardens were of interest

I went during the day. But the sun sets behind the mountains behind Sohail castle. and that's worth watching.
