We toured the ruins on our own and spent around 60-90 minutes walking around. It was interesting and the view beautiful, but there is not much left of what was a vary large 13th century castle. Worth a stop for sure.

If you have only 1 hour 25 mins then I strongly recommend to take car or taxi to reach up so that you can atleast spend 30-40 mins at the castle. Coming down is easy and faster will take 15 mins so you can chose to walk down... More
