If you think to go to this city, this may be the best option to choose. But recommend to take a guide or join any group. As there are many stories and legends about this place. You may see the whole city from here.

Very nice location, beautiful view. Not a huge place - some souvenir shops and a place for coffee. Worth to visit once.
