The castle is on tip of the hill and is a bit of a hike up some steep steps- but worth seeing. The views from the castle are amazing. To us, the greatest thing was how it was built so long ago!! Wonderful!

Great views, go at sunset for breathtaking vistas out towards the ocean! The building itself is quite small, but delightful nooks and crannies exist, and it's great for kids.

The castle is lovely at night time as it is lit up and well presented. During the day, the views are most certainly worth the walk! A great spot!

Nice climb to the top. There was no one there supervising the building, so we assumed it was free. Beware of the flocks of school kids who come in and scream.
