Walk around the walls of this beautiful fortress town! See the lovely windmill. You'll be able to see everything from above :) Also walk through the streets and see the military barracks.

This is a very large place. You could easily spend hours here. I don't recall if there is food/drink available, but there are good bathrooms. Even though it takes some uphill walking I might recommend getting up onto the ramparts to see around. The inner...More
