Like a previous attraction I visited I came here by tour bus. So glad as the castle on all the lava looks stunning. Regret not time to go inside but so glad I have seen it.

The castle stands on a dramatic promontory but after the effort to climb the stairs and, in the drizzle, slippery ramp we found the interior lacking detail and leaving the views to be the stars. The castle is well preserved and needs the historical back...More

We could not get close to the old castle due to road repairs and the size of our bus, disappointing as it is a feature landmark of the town and in a great coastal location. We had to be happy with a stroll on the...More
