Stunning. No more words to describe it. Definately worth a ride to see it. A taxi will take you there in 15min for some 10€

We went up with a tour (from Green Line Tours CV) - many don't go *all* the way to the top, so ask first. We loved it, but if you don't like roads with steep drop offs, this might not be for you (there are...More
