This castle is a very nice example of a tower castle that is a little off the beaten path. This allows you to read the information and enjoy it without large crowds. Many of the surrounding structures have not survived time, but it had a low admission price and the main tower was in great shape. Ironically, the number of visitors is so low, my wife and I almost spent the night in the tower. As we were leaving, the staff was locking the outside gate door..effectively locking us in for the night, but we caught them as the door was closing. We definitely would have gotten our admission price out of a "tour". All was in good fun, but goes to show how you can enjoy this piece of history on your own.
