Went in and the lady said it was free entry, although only 2.35 euros anyway at other times. Great views from the top across the town and coast, informative albeit small museum on site also. Quite stony / rocky and uneven underfoot so wear decent...More

For the price you can't beat this, for just a couple of euros it is a tour of the castle and the nearby museum. We love the mini model of what it would have looked like in the past and you can see in every...More

Just 2.35€ to enter...about 1 hour to visit. Well worth the time although a bit empty inside. Great views. Also includes visit to nearby archeological museum. They should really put a bit of effort into maintenance. The glass in the museum displays was very dirty.
