  • It is a typical Castel. You can visit it inside. Nice views of the village.
  • Fantastic little rustic village, where slows down to a crawl, local market looked amazing ( closed on mondays ) fantastic 13th century castle also closed on monday, but thats ok on the flip side we picked up a 10 year bottle of local red wine for under 5€,
