Small square tower which you can go onto the roof for views. Would not want to pay much money to go in it or go there just to visit the fort but ok if walking down from the 'rock' with a nature reserve ticket.

Not necessary to visit. Admire the castle from e.g. the city. Visiting the castle is only recommended if you are in the area. Would not be worth the cab money. If you are walking down the Rock and have the nature reserve ticket, it is...More

Once you get in there is only a staircase and a couple of old rooms, the view from the top is exactly the same as from everywhere else. nothing special about the castle and it looks better from the outside. According to the security officer...More

This is more of a tower than what we consider a castle but it is showing its scars. It is, in fact, a tower within a tower. You will need to be fit to view this tower properly as there is a lot of steps...More
