  • It was a castle right off the cliffs with wonderful views of the coastline. The best part was the views of the arch. There were still lots of walls and spaces to walk through. You could imagine what it looked like, but it wasn't like walking through many of the castles in France. It was fun anyway. Take a look if you are in the area!
  • Pretty cool, I would say the views are better than the ruins themselves. But fun for a bit of exploring and good value. The Mermaids cave which was a huge draw for me to come had been blocked off (likely for good cause), so it was a bit disappointing to hike down there and find you weren’t to go near it but just view it from quite a distance. Otherwise we found the staff lovely and we had a beautiful sunny day to explore!
  • Where do I start! This is 10000% worth a visit! Just be careful with Parking!! It’s a very cheap sightseeing spot!! Gorgeous views packed with lots of history! The staff is very lovely, especially the lady who works there!! We couldn’t believe how amazing it was! Please make sure you stop by! Otherwise you will regret it!!
  • Really big and well preserved castle placed on a really cool spot. Sadly there is a entry fee and for students they don't offer any discount. The staff was friendly and let some of us use the toilet even though we didn't payed the entry. You have some good views from outside and you can take a walk underneath a bridge of the castle. Would recommend a visit here!
  • We arrived right before they closed the gates which is 30 minutes before closing. The staff was friendly when I realized I forgot my wallet in the car, but she let me run back to get it anyway. The guides inside were really friendly and even shared a story with me about some local folklore. The castle is beautiful on the cliffs and has amazing views inside as well.
