  • Impressive, well-preserved rise worth alone the prospect because we were there late in the evening, an experience

  • A beautiful and historic place with wonderful architecture and little gems all over the place especially within the old city! Well worth a visit!  more »
  • Impressed by its fortress wall thickness. A huge ditch in front of a wall (the moat dry without water). Antiquity!
