We visited in September and after being given the option of 8€ for the lift down or 13€ for the trails we opted for the second. Unfortunately no one bothered to inform us that half of the park was being 'redeveloped' and we were only...More

We popped into the site as reviews suggested some good rock formations. We bought tickets that allowed a walk though gardens and then a ride down to the river. The gardens are pleasant enough, and if you have children it's probably a little more suited...More
