The castle is not full of artefacts and needs a lot of money spending on it, but it is well worth a look . It is only 2 euros, it has fantastic views and is a nice break from a few hours on the beach

This place is breathtaking. The views are scenic and there are "binoculars" so you can look down very nice. Entrance is very cheap but not free. It is worth a visit!

Wonderful view and scenery. Worth the 2 Euros. Get all the way up and take a panoramic shot from up there. Need to be wearing comfortable shoes. On the way down you deserve a Granita de Mandorla after all the hike to refresh and reload.
