Great place to visit. Very informative and lots to see. There is also bit for the kids to do as well. It’s mainly outside so wear appropriate clothing, I only had flip flops and was expecting nice weather- not heavy rain!

A walk around the Citadel is well recommend it’s well maintained and gives great views across the countryside. You can walk 360 degrees around the town, however there are some steep drops so make sure children and dogs are always under control
