Not fully restored part of the wall, this means it isn't an easy trail. Lots of climbing and sometimes you need to jump out of a watchtower. It made it challenging in good way for me. I had a pick up from my hostel and...More

Hi It may be closed now. It was actually a while ago when we were there. If it is open it is well worth the effort.
