  • Not a polished tourist attraction, but an amazing old town clustered in and around the ruins of the castle. You get a great view to the sea from the top. Worth going to Cafe Butterfly if you go up to the castle. Nice little place to get coffee with a view.
  • I went there walking from Himare and it took around 40-50 mins walking, but it was really worth it. Loved this place, all the ruins and the views from there was just breathtaking. There is a cafe there as well, so you can relax if you want or just sit somewhere and keep looking the views before making your way down
