  • Grandiose 18th century monument, perfectly lined up with the city's main road part of a larger assembly. The monument is governing the hilltop and here is the beginning of the spectacular...

  • I’ve visited the place with my daughter. The place itself is amazing and looks incredible. We walked down to the museum in the hope to be able to use the toilet and buy a drink. Unfortunately my daughter was denied entry because she didn’t have her school id with her (we didn’t know she needed it for drinks and toilet) Which is unbelievable. Ive Never experienced a Child not being allowed to eat or drink or use a public toilet. She had to go toilet outside in -4*. I’ll never go back to this place.
  • An amazing experience to be at this place. Very beautiful and worth visit. There is a great restaurant at the top which I would highly recommend.
