Bit disappointed as this is n9 longer a castle but is an art museum. No access to the roof for views. Toilets are good. Entry fee is €4.

May be not easy to find, but once there, you will have a marvellous example of a Perfect resturation. Most of the Castle is used as art Exhibitions. Youhave to pay a small entrance fee.
