We visited this marvelous Norman fortress late in the day, so we saw it at dusk and under lights. It is a wonderful site - and it amazed us how they could build such a structure in this location, given the amount of rock it took to do so. It is in remarkably good condition for something so old.

This is a large castle, that like many, was built in the 9th century and then extended and rebuilt over the centuries.

There are lots of battlements and rooms to visit. Follow the plan they give you to make the most of your visit.

Great views of the area.

Check opening times, as closed for lunch.

Adult admission only EUR 2.

The scenic drive and the views alone would make this a destination. Throw In that it has history from the 6th century and a dominating strategic fortress from the Crusades and the history buff in me is inflamed. As in many castles there is not much to see inside, and it is not curated. As others say let the stones do the talking. Take time to stroll the streets of this unspoiled medieval town. There is a large paid parking lot adjacent to the fortress.

Worth a visit, we were here in September and there was a lack of interpretation - TV screens in place but not working and very little other information. However the stones do speak for themselves. It is worth an hour or so and it's not expensive to get in. As others have said there are some great views, both within the castle and the surrounding area.

The view on top of the castle was nice, but inside the castle was filled of classrooms. it did not have the authentic castle feel at all
