We were on a tour and made it to this place in the rain. I'm glad I decided to go to the top. The view was amazing.... Maybe the rain kept some people away, but I enjoyed that it was not so crowded.

Visited this place in May 2018 and it was very good, there are a number of steps to get to the top but worth the walk and steps. Very tranquil and a good insight into history etc.
