The museum made the stop worthwhile. It provide information about the history and prehistory of the site (built in an ancient calera). Though the displays were not in English, the (awesome and helpful) staff provided an English guide sheet to help fill in the gaps. He also pointed out a WWII bunker just outside the gate that had placards with photos explaining the use of the bunker. Also included was a touching memorial to the Jews from the area who had been murdered by the Nazis.

Interesting part restored castle. Enjoyed the museum area even though it would have helped to have an English translation for the printed notes alongside the displays.

For fee 4-€, we got a lot of information about castle history. That was worthy. But the best part of the visit were the views. You could see the whole country around.
