What a beautiful castle - absolutely magic. Set in the water, with crashing waves all around. Feels like a fairy tale. The light at sunset is so beautiful, highly recommended, you can't not love it!

We visited past sundown and the place was empty except for a few locals jogging along the coast. The tower itself is majestic from the outside, plenty of sea birds in the area make for a beautiful view. Didn't get a chance to tour inside....More

Very cool, worth the travel out to see it. We didn't go into the tower. All we needed to see was outside :)
