We walked all the way up to this old Castel this morning, huffing and puffing, but it was well worth the climb. It has a lot of history, including an old 15th C ruin of a church. There are signs in 3 languages explaining the history of the view site. There are a lot of seats so you don't have to climb up there in one go. Bring a sun hat and a bottle of water if you go in the midday sun.

We could see the waterfall from the town so wanted to investigate further. It is very easy to find and a pleasant walk, despite the heat. I would suggest wearing trainers or similar though as there are lots of steps and steep hills so flip flops would have been incredibly uncomfy! One of the tourist trains went to the top but we chose to walk and enjoy the views. The waterfall is beautiful and incredibly refreshing after the climb!

Views from the hill are quite nice, and the thing I'd like to emphasise is there is a lift to get to the top of the hill, such a convenience in the hot weather!

Great views of the coastline, and waterfalls up there are awesome. It's a big climb and it was 90+ when I was there, the elevator up and leisurely stroll down made it great. Little crowded, but drops you right into old town at the end.
