We loved this! There were enough rooms renovated to make us envision ourselves living or visiting here centuries before, but enough ruins to imagine what it might have looked like. The tower had amazing views! And there is a drawbridge!!

I really enjoyed this castle! Visited on a Thursday afternoon, so there weren't many people there. It's quite picturesque and well-maintained. You can pretty much go wherever you want on the castle grounds and take pictures of anything. Climbing to the top of one of...More
