If you happen to be a keen photographer, then the ancient castle provides you with an absolutely perfect view of a majestic and awe inspiring sunset.

This ancient fortress dates all the way back to the 12th century, so even if perhaps the sunset isn’t for you, or you wish to be back before dark, then this ancient castle is still worth a visit. Little is known about this landmark, but even so, it’s still spectacular in its own right, and like we said, the views are simply out of this world.
