Been here a few times; simply beautiful if, like me, you're into history & culture. Great views from the top all around 360 degrees, from the mountain ranges, down to the beautiful harbour. Can get hot mid-day onwards, so would recommend a morning trip.

Nice view of harbour, cheap to enter, little shop in the castle, not very ideal for small children, would be had climbing to the top of castle.

The castle overlooks the port of this lovely old harbour. Access is relatively easy but there are many steps to the upper areas.
