    We took some nice pictures and the information provided by the guide was very good. It aroused our attention. It is very important to take this tour with a group and a guide, as it is difficult to understand the history, the castle tours, the arrival, etc. alone.

    Take into account the walk that will be done. It is not heavy but it is important to be comfortable. Once at the top, the views of the village are beautiful.
