Definitely a place to visit, the fortress has been "fixed" and reopen for turists, a very nice and old turistic point.

The fortress cold offer for tourists in therms of history. However, as a visitor, I missed certain things (ex. displays with more detailed information, guides). It's worth a visit, but do your homework properly before you go there.

It was closed for renovation. The surrounding garden wasn't bad considering the winter. Probably will going to be gorgeous once opened.

I can't wait to see it in 2015, when (supposedly) the restoration works will be finally over. Until then, a few steps on its old walls may let one feel like he/she's a lordship living in there 5 centuries ago...
