This is a truly wonderful site. First, there's the view from the castle, with rolling hills to one side and river valley to the other. Then, there's the solid blockiness of the castle itself, imposing and commanding. Then inside are the magnificent frescoes--lively, inventive, and definitely not stodgy religious themes. We were glad this was the day's main destination so that we could take the time to wander slowly, alternate between art and landscape, then return to rooms to look again. The castle was a grand reward for the long walk up the hill.
