Owner description: The city hall of this picturesque, undeveloped village reflects its anachronistic spirit.

We paid 2 euro to climb all 214 steps. Steep climb and a bit of a work out. Still.... well worth the view.

The tower offers a tremendous view, but beware that the steps are many and steep. This is NOT for those who suffer from agoraphobia in the slightest.

At the town hall there is a tourist information, an opportunity to climb the town, and a small museum with the original jail cells in the basement...all of which was a little hard to find but a lot of fun and worth the search.

A steep climb to the top, not safe for some visitors, and not the most welcoming host at the top, but some amazing views of the city.
