It may have been.called 'Gigantic' since in its heyday it had huge figures on top-now missing. Really it is merely a large somewhat tatty arch leading towards the Fortress. Worth a photo or two but nothing to get worked up about.

Worth the trek up the hill, full of great history, breathtaking views, and fabulous smells from the surrounding gardens and trees. Even the audio guide (included in the <€5 price) was done really well, and the refreshments fairly priced. Highly recommend it, and a refreshing...More

Stunning views make the walk up the hill to this castle worth the heat and effort. An audio history is available and sets the stage by recreating the past through dramatic conversations and explanations. Normally, I wouldn't want to be listening to an audio device,...More
