Very nice ancient place where you can walk nicely not too hard and enjoy a great view for only 2 euro, lovely

Incredible backdrop of the mountains. Its story of destruction by both man -accidental and deliberate, and nature adds to the interest, as efforts to preserve face many barriers, not least the cost. Do visit but take your rubbish away with you....

the fortress has nice views over the coast, several buildings are renovated but overall the is much to clean up. worth visit the fortress itself, the hammam, parts of walls and the lapidarium. reserve 1 to 2 hours to enjoy.

It almost seems otherworldly, like something out of Lord of the Rings or Skyrim. Beautiful ruins creep out of the largely abandoned city on a hill. Nice walk, gorgeous views. You want to have your wedding there!

Enjoyed the walled city and the hill of shops outside. Thanks to other reviewers as we managed to drive past the car park scammer - but for 2 euro it was not like losing your life savings. It is a bit steep at times but...More

The entrance to the fortress in located at the end of a cobble stone road which takes you from the parking area through small shops and restaurants. The ruins are interesting. The views from the top of the citadel are amazing.

The old town's wrecked houses' walls can still be seen here more than in many other European ruins. The scenery from the top is stunning and the athmosphere in mid June was very peaceful. Worth visiting but not good for people with walking difficulties.

This old town was destroyed just few decades ago by an earthquake (1979). Now in ruins but originally build for a hiding place from pirates.

Hi there I know I'm late, but I didn't see your question up to this moment. Come to Bar and forget the overpriced and overtouristy other places. Here is a quiet town, with a nice, long promenade, lined by palm trees. Food is... More
