The Zalongo monument is worth stopping by. It's tragical history is sad but brave, an the the view from the top is really beautiful. A lot of stairs to walk up, but really doable of you just take it a bit slow.

Other than that, worth a visit, the history behind this monument is heartbreaking. Worth stopping by. Nice monastery just where you park your car.

Very nice retreat if you are in the vicinity. Sharp climb, but not so hard for overcoming. Climbing will be awarded with a beautiful view.

This is a must see location. The history, while so sad, but is important. There are many steps, over 100, but "What a View!" when reaching the top. Also, going to the small church, built in the 1800's, and chatting with the Nuns was quite...More

Off the main route but well worth the effort. Start at the monastery then climb the 421 steps (yes we counted them) On top you will find the superb monument combined with views that will take your breath away (once you have got it back...More

Not for the feint hearted, lots of steps up to the monument. Important part of local history and a tragic story. Worth going on a tour with a guide.
