You can walk through history here and there is an abundance of nature, in the carefully maintained rose gardens and other botanical gardens scattered across the site.

A reasonably short climb/hike gives you access to four old castle ruins in a row which are really fun to explore, plus you get great views over the surrounding mountains and valleys.
The climb up to the main site is well worth the effort and each of the towers can be entered; the views are terrific!

It is worth the climb and the admission fee just for the fabulous view of the cathedral which you get from the top (and the heavenly breeze on a hot summer day).
It is a tower with wonderful views from the top - if you are prepared to climb the 167 step spiral staircase to the top!
