The castle 🏯 is on the top of the mountain 🏔 Suggest you 2.5 hours to visit. There is also a small museum about army and history. And a prison in the castle. Good views to take photos and overlooking the whole town. There are few restaurants under the castle and souvenir shops.

Cool castle to visit in town with epic views of the city. Spent many hours here wandering around. A bit more information in some areas would have been helpful but overall a great half day adventure.
