Stunning views, very picturesque. Very busy and a couple of shops at the top where you can buy some touristy trinkets - should you wish. Worth a visit.

The castle is almost totally ruined but it is situated on an impressive high mountain that offers a beautiful panoramic view where you can take pictures of both mountains and sea.

Well worth a visit for the views alone, a visit to the church is lovely however up a few steps but once there it's pretty idyllic

The castle is easy to reach by car followed by short walk and climb by stone steps. Be aware – some steps are quite slippery. Ruins itself is not something special, but the location on the steep rock gives spectacular views. Those having fear of heights might feel a bit uncomfortable near the edges.

Excellent views over the west cost with other islands in the distance. Fairly easy to find and although a bit of a steep walk up to the top it is well worth it for the views.

A little difficult to get to but incredible views, especially at sunset. Old Venetian-era castle on a hill, nice church at the top of the mountain.

Like a lot of monuments this could be improved by better steps etc. The views are good but thought the ground below was a bit dodgy. Also no WC and noticed a man relieving himself at the side of the path which wasn't ideal.

Be careful, the way up is very slippery! I do not suggest wearing flip flops, but the rock formations make for very cool pictures!
