Much to see and explore - the castle, the convent, the grounds. A steep walk up to it but we took a tuktuk up the hill and walked back down.

Nice view from up. Very beautiful place. Huge castle, with lots of history. Good to do a picnic up there with good atmosphere and landscape. Nice to go walking, not so hard high.

Everything a crusader fort/castle should be. Towering on top of the hill and well kept. Some of the stone carvings was weathered, but still great - especially around a fabulous window. And the church, where the crusaders could attend mass on horse back, also made...More

I'm a total history buff. And I'm going to say this is one of my favourite historical locations in the world. I used to say it was undiscovered but the queues this year would suggest that it's been well and truly discovered. Terry Gilliam filmed...More

Visiting the castle there is a small cafe on the left as you approach the top. I would recommend you park close to that and hide everything in the boot. The other person has made a good suggestion too. The town has lots of... More
